Sprinting great Usain Bolt and former Reggae Boyz captain Ricardo 'Bibi' Gardner are now in Russia ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup final, set for the Luzhniki Stadium tomorrow.

Bolt, a brand ambassador for FIFA sponsors Hublot, will be in the stands when Croatia and France line up for the final and he will have his good friend and former Bolton Wanderers star Gardner as well as his executive manager Nugent Walker with him for company.

The group spent last night at a dinner hosted by the luxury watch brand in Moscow.

Bolt, who retired after the 2017 London World Championships is the world record holder in the 100m and 200m. He also boasts eight Olympic gold medals.

France, who got the better of Belgium 1-0 in their semi-final, will be looking to win their second World Cup title when they come up against first time finalist Croatia, who beat England 2-1 in extra-time in their semi-final clash..
