The Jamaican sprinter was mentioned by Redknapp during an episode of Sky 1's sports quiz show A League of Their Own, where the former Liverpool player recalled a moment during Mo Farah's charity dinner when Bolt mistakenly offered his condolences to Jamie for losing his job at White Hart Lane.
Redknapp said on the show: "I'm going, 'My God, Usain Bolt's on the same table as me!' He turns round and says, 'How's your knee now, man?' and I said to Mo, 'I can't believe he knows who I am!' Then he says, 'Oh, I'm really sorry to hear you got sacked from Spurs!' Devastated, I was!"
Redknapp, who regularly appears on Sky Sports as a pundit, quit playing football in 2005 due to a host of injury problems.
