Usain Bolt is the fastest man on the planet, but how’s his performance on the games console?

We’re not sure, but it seems the Jamaican’s friends are about to find out after he posted a video on Instagram showing his excitement for Call Of Duty: Ghosts.

The latest iteration of the hugely popular action game hit the shelves in the early hours of Tuesday morning, and Bolt was on hand to pick up a copy.

Bolt was with a couple of friends at the Str8 Games shop in the Sovereign Centre in Kingston, Jamaica, and he could not contain his excitement.

In the video, Bolt said, "It’s about to go down!"

If Bolt can play Call Of Duty: Ghosts as well as he can run, then his friends might as well give up the unequal struggle now.

Call of Duty fever also hit London, with Sky News reporting that Activision Publishing hosted an event on Monday.

The report claimed a team that included Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge won the event.

Bolt’s a big fan of football, so surely a Call Of Duty: Ghosts clash between the Jamaican and Sturridge is in the cards.
