Jamaican Olympic silver and gold medallist Yohan Blake sends a message of praise to Liverpool youngster Raheem Sterling on Twitter.

Jamaican Olympic silver and gold medallist Yohan Blake has expressed his support to Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling.

The 17-year-old, who claimed his first Premier League start in the Reds' 2-2 draw with Manchester City on Sunday, has received widespread praise for his impressive performance against the English champions.

While the world of football has been hailing the teen starlet, Blake, who clinched silver in the 100m and 200m at London 2012 as well as a gold medal in the men's 4x100m relay, has also taken note of the youngster's talent.

The sprinter tweeted: "Hail up fellow Yardie-- Raheem Stirling of Liverpool FC! Big up yourself."

Sterling was born in Jamaica before moving to London when he was a child.
