Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt has wished both teams good luck ahead of their finals at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.

A video posted on Twitter by Digicel Jamaica shows Bolt supporting the Caribbean teams who are on the verge of a historic 'Dream Double' - winning both the Men's and Women's World T20.

The Windies women, who are first-time finalists are playing Australia while the men, who won the trophy in 2012, will take on England.

"Just wanna wish the West Indies women and men Twenty20 teams all the best.I know you guys will do great so all the best," says Bolt.

The Twitter account of West Indies cricket thanked the legend for his wishes as well, with their trademark slogan 'Rally' and 'One Love'.

Isn't it great to see the 'Champion', as he's called in cricketer Dwayne Bravo's viral song, cheering for his team.
