Yohan 'The Beast' Blake Reaffirms Johnny English Obsession At Lord's (PICTURES)

Yohan Blake, the triple-Olympic medallist at London 2012, has again namechecked Rowan Atkinson character Johnny English as his obsession with the character grows.

Having taken gold as part of Jamaica's 4x100m sprint relay team, Blake vowed the quartet could smash their 36.84 world record and run the race in 35 seconds.


"I think next year we can do it. As I said recently, I think us guys are from space! We're like Johnny English or Mr Bean, we drop from the sky."


The two-time silver medallist had already referenced English after the 4x100m win last Saturday when he and Bolt charismatically celebrated their win.

Sporting a set of nails akin to late Olympic sprint champion Florence Delorez Griffith-Joyner, this Beast had a different bell on Thursday. Blake was at Lord's to summon England and South Africa for the start of play of their third Test match.
