Bolt makes Guardian front page...without wings

Earlier this week Guardian reader Nick Wall from Merseyside wrote to the paper asking why it had pictured British heptathalon gold medal winner Jessica Ennis on the front page rather than the Jamaican world record breaking 100m sprinter Usain Bolt.
Wall wrote: "He's run half a second faster than the legendary Jesse Owens. He's taken an unbelievable 0.11 of a second off his own 100m world record. So what does Usain Bolt have to do to get his picture on the front page (17 August) instead of the latest plucky British medal winner? Grow wings and fly?"
Well Bolt's on the front page of the Guardian today as a teaser for a piece in the sports pages and all without growing wings.
