NBC News recently reported that Usain Bolt has coronavirus. They wrote, “World-record sprinter and eight-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt has tested positive for the coronavirus and is self-isolating at his home in Jamaica after last week celebrating his 34th birthday with a big bash mask-free.”

Unfortunately, when they posted the article to social media, they used a photo of Kevin Hart instead of Usain. Bolt The mistake quickly made its rounds around social media, and even Kevin Hart posted about the mix-up.

The comedian wrote, “No comment …..I must of gotten really fast & tall overnight….I want to take advantage of this moment & race anybody in the world. We can bet whatever….S— just got real. I am also no longer doing comedy due to my Olympic training schedule….IM BACK BITCHES!!!!!!  P.S this is Disrespectful on so many levels….All you can do is laugh. Maybe the Covid 19 shrunk his legs & torso.”

And of course, social media is having a field day with the blunder. See some of the funniest tweets below.
