New Delhi [India], Feb.21 (ANI): Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli has expressed his gratitude to Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt after the latter congratulated the swashbuckling batsman, for signing a whopping Rs. 110 crore deal with sports brand Puma by becoming their brand ambassador. By bagging an eight-year endorsement contract, Kohli also became the first Indian sportsperson to grab a single deal worth Rs 100 crore or above. Although former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and master blaster Sachin Tendulkar have been a part of the Rs 100 crore club, they did so with multi-year contracts with various brands. Congratulating Kohli on becoming the latest sports star to endorse Puma, Bolt tweeted, "Great choice @imVkohli Time to go to the next level #ForeverFaster" Few hours later, the Indian batting mainstay responded by hailing Olympic great Bolt while also expressing his desire to run as fast as the latter someday or the other. "I wish I could get as fast as you someday @usainbolt. Thanks legend," Kohli wrote on Twitter.
