Usain Bolt has appealed for the safe return of a pair of running shoes that were stolen in Croydon.
The shoes, signed by the man himself, and framed for display with a photo of the sprinter, are valued at around £20,000.
The six-time Olympic champion tweeted:
A pair of running shoes signed by six-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt were among the items stolen during a burglary.
The orange Puma running shoes, signed by Bolt and framed for display with a photo of the sprinter after he set a new world record in 2009, are valued at around £20,000.
The shoes were among the items stolen during a burglary at a commercial premises on an industrial estate in Gloucester Road, Croydon.
Police believe the offence took place between 10.30pm on Saturday 26 April and 5.45am on Monday 28 April.
Officers have urged anyone with information who has been offered the item to purchase to contact Croydon CID on 0203 276 2287.
Hundreds of fans have queued in London to catch a glimpse of the world's fastest man, Usain Bolt, as he signs copies of his new book 'Faster Than Lightning' in Selfridges.
At the launch of his new autobiography 'Faster Than Lightning' in London, the world's fastest man said: "If you want to be the best, or you want to strive for more, you've got to set goals in life."
British sprinter Adam Gelili has tweeted about his team being disqualified from the 4x100m relay at the World Athletic Championships in Moscow today:
Team GB loses its bronze medal in the 4x100m men's final for an illegal changeover.
Adam Gemili is going for World Championship glory tonight, just 18 months after swapping football for a career in sprinting. Only 19, the former Dagenham and Redridge defender will line up in the 200 metres final next to world record holder Usain Bolt in Moscow.
Gemili goes into the race fresh from a remarkable day in which he became only the second Briton ever to break the 20-second barrier.
Having headed to Russia with a personal best of 20.30 secs, he lowered that to 20.17s before producing a 19.98s semi-final sprint - a time quicker than that managed by Bolt yesterday.
The Olympic champion Usain Bolt has won the 100m at the Anniversary Games in a time of 9.85 seconds.
The world's fastest man looks set to return to the Olympic Stadium in Stratford this summer, a year after he won three gold medals at the London Olympics. Usain Bolt's agent has said that negotiations have been taking place to ensure the sprinter will compete at the London Anniversary Games in July.
Bolt has not competed at a non-Olympic event in Britain for four years because UK tax rules mean it would have cost him money to compete here. However, Chancellor George Osborne has decided that the Anniversary Games will be exempt. The Games will take place on July 26 and 27.
The judge in the case of a man who got into the men's Olympic 100m final without a ticket and then hurled a bottle at Usain Bolt and his rivals has retired to consider his verdict.
Ashley Gill-Webb, 34, pushed his way to the front of an exclusive seating area after getting into the stadium, Stratford Magistrates' Court in east London has heard.
He then starting shouting: Usain, I want you to lose. Usain, you are bad, you are an ****hole", before throwing the bottle.
Bolt went on to win the race on August 5 in 9.63 seconds.
Mr Gill-Webb was sectioned after his first court appearance and has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
His defence lawyer, Rhiannon Crimmins, said: "He would not have acted in this way but for his illness."
