Tyson Gay, the second fastest man in history in the 100m, met with the media at the Meridien Lav Hotel in Split, Croatia, last week where he responded to question regarding a statement Usain Bolt made.

Bolt in a recent interview states that Tyson Gay hates his guts.

In the interview Tyson Gay said, “Our relationship is cool. I’ve known him since 2005, 2006, since we’ve been competing against each other in Jamaica. I’ve always had a cool relationship with him on the track and off the track. We’ve never gone to a club together or anything like that, but it’s always been a mutual respect on my part. So that’s how it’s always been for me.”

“I don’t hate Usain Bolt deep down inside (laughs),” Gay also said.
