Step aside Usain Bolt, another Jamaican star is setting a furious pace on his rise to Bundesliga stardom.
Leon Bailey has shot to fame this season with his eye-catching performances in a Bayer Leverkusen shirt. Six goals in 14 Bundesliga outings, including two in the 4-4 draw with Hannover on Matchday 17, have catapulted Bailey's name into world footballing circles.

Bolt, who retired from athletics this year after dominating sprint racing for the best part of a decade, has not missed his compatriot's lightning rise either and recently posted a video of Bailey in action on Instagram, saying: 'Watch my bro @leonbailey_9 a move like his name is Usain Bolt'.
Back home for the holidays, Bailey bumped into Bolt, and posted the following picture as proof:
