Usain Bolt takes up residence in London


LONDON, 23 JULY, 2012

SOUNDBITE 1: Meike Schulze, (woman) general manager, Madame Tussauds [English, 21 sec]:
"We are very pleased with the result, however the figure has been created from research because unfortunately Usain Bolt has been a very very busy person leading up to the Olympics particularly, so we have created him from research but his team has been informed all along the process and has actually seen the final shots and they loved it and we love it -- I think it is going to be amazing."

SOUNDBITE 2: Meike Schulze, (woman) general manager, Madame Tussauds [English, 14 sec]:
"It wasn't very difficult to choose the position and the pose he is doing because it is so Usain Bolt and I think our guests will love posing beside him doing exactly the same figure pose and I think it will be very very unique."
