Rio de Janeiro - Cramped beds, blocked toilets, stuck lifts - the Athletes Village has come in for its fair share of criticism during the Rio Olympics.

But the facility got a mostly positive review from Jamaican sprint superstar Usain Bolt on Tuesday.

Apart from one key shortcoming: a television.

"The only problem I've had so far is I've had to buy a TV myself," Bolt said.

"Otherwise it's been good."

Usain Bolt said he took matters into his own hands soon after arriving in Rio.

"I asked for a TV and thought they were going to get it but they didn't," he said. "So after a few days I just bought one."
