The statement goes on to say: “Bolt has been partnering with the investment institution for over 10 years, and work is underway to review its entire investment portfolio.”
The British newspaper Daily Star said that a former employee of an investment institution was involved in a major robbery, in which Bolt lost some of his money.
According to the Forbes website, Bolt amassed a massive £25 million (approximately $30.577 million) in the last year of his athletic career before retiring in 2017, while Celebrity Net Worth assessed the well-known runner’s overall fortune with 74 million pounds (90 million) and $500,000).
