Britney Spears is a ray of sunshine in yellow and insists she was JOKING when she claimed to demolish Usain Bolt’s 100m record

She left fans baffled when she posted that she beat Usain Bolt’s 100-meter world record by a whopping four seconds.

But Britney Spears’ false start may have been deliberate.

The 38-year-old pop star took to Instagram to share a video of herself posing in yellow outfits, along with a long caption that ended with her clarifying that she was sarcastic when she claimed to be breaking the men’s track record.

‘as soon as i did that i hit 5 !!!!! I usually walk 6 or 7…. my first attempt was 9…. and now i did it oops !!!!! 100 meter stripe !!!!! ‘

A follower joked that she was the ‘front runner for the 2020 winner’, while another suggested the U.S. Olympic team choose her for the race.

In addition to that sentiment, another added, “Now we know why Usain Bolt retired.”

Others shared funny memes, including one of Bolt winks and another that featured a Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse scene where Usain took on the role of Myles Morales as he watched Britney’s Peter Parker in awe.

But it wasn’t all negative, as the star’s Instagram post was inundated with words of encouragement and support from her fans.
