Olympic silver medal high jumper Germaine Mason (top and bottom with his friend Usain Bolt) was heading into Kingston, Jamaica, at around 4.20am when he lost control of his motorbike along the Palisadoes main road and crashed, dying instantly. The 34-year-old was riding in the front of a convoy with several other athletes, including track star Bolt, 2005 world championship 100m silver medallist Michael Frater, andĀ former Bolton defender Ricardo Gardner when the crash occurred. Mason, who has a five-year-old son, competed in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing and won a silver medal for Great Britain in the high jump event.
