Manchester United continued their fine form in the Premier League as they overcame Middlebrough at Old Trafford in their New Year’s Eve clash.
United were on the verge of defeat after Grant Leadbitter had given the visitors the lead after Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s goal was disallowed.
It took goals from Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba in the last five minutes to hand all three points to the Red Devils.
The win was a good one for the United fans and also for super fan Usain Bolt. The nine-time Olympic gold winner watched on from Jamaica and was so impressed with the win, he called in to join United’s in-house programme.
MUTV presenter Mandy Henry was in disbelieve saying: “Our next caller is in Jamaica. We’re heading over there to speak to Usain…. It’s not Usain Bolt is it?” And according to her Tweets, she never believed it was the real Usain Bolt calling.

Sorry Usain – we didn’t think it was you! Enjoy your celebrations in Jamaica & call again after West Ham on Monday night! https://t.co/64hfB6l5Gk
