Track and field posterboy Usain Bolt has denied calling the Commonwealth Games rubbish, after his alleged comments about the games formed a storm of controversy.
According to The Times, Bolt was waiting for his car in the Athletes' Village when he made remarks about the Glasgow Games calling them "a bit shit" and added that the Olympics were better.
The fastest man on Earth allegedly made the following comments just after meeting the royal trio - Prince Harry, Prince Williams and the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton.
The Jamaican, however, completely denied making any such remarks on his official Twitter account, tweeting: "I'm waking up to this nonsense..journalist please don't create lies to make headlines".

Ricky Simms, Bolt's manager, also rubbished the reports that the Jamaican has made any such remarks about the games and praised the facilities and atmosphere in Glasgow.
"The atmosphere in and around the stadiums have been absolutely fantastic and I have absolutely no idea where these quotes have come from," Simms said.
The participation of Bolt, after missing the last edition in Delhi, is a huge boost for the Glasgow Games, after star athletes like Mo Farah, Mark Cavendish and Jessica Ennis-Hill decided to skip the event.
However, the Olympic winner will not be competing in the 100m and 200m events, in which he won gold medals in the 2012 London Olympics. The 27-year-old will star in the 4x100m relay heat at Hampden Park on Friday, while the finals will take place on Saturday.
The Olympics champ has recently arrived in Glasgow and in his first press conference said that he will spend most of his time in his room at the Athletes Village.
Meanwhile, the 2014 Games have been termed as successful by the organising committee, after they managed to sell 1.2 million tickets for the event, thus making it the most successful event Scotland has ever hosted.
Chief executive of Glasgow 2014, David Grevemberg insisted that the organisers are getting positive response from the athletes.
"We are utterly thrilled by the positive reaction Glasgow and Scotland's Games is receiving from Commonwealth athletes," Grevemberg said. "The passionate support of the packed crowds in the in the venues is inspiring."
