AC Milan star Mario Balotelli has exchanged barbs with sprint star Usain Bolt.

Manchester United man Bolt admits he's no fan of Balotelli.

"Balotelli is a great football player, although perhaps a little too aggressive for my tastes," said Bolt.

"He never misses a penalty. I've met him a couple of times and to be honest I don't like him very much."

Balotelli caught wind of the interview while on international duty and wrote directly to Bolt via Twitter.

"@usainbolt get to no people before to judge them! Isnt very kind what u said about me..."
