Jamie Redknapp reveals that Olympic champion Usain Bolt mistakenly took the TV pundit for his dad Harry.

Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt has confused TV pundit Jamie Redknapp for his dad and former Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry.

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.
