What Antony said to Usain Bolt after Sunday's win
Following Manchester United's FA Cup quarter-final triumph over Fulham on Sunday, Antony was quick to shout out Usain Bolt - who was present at the match - for correctly predicting the final score.
The fastest man in the world said pre-match that United would win 3-1, and that's just what happened when a brace from Bruno Fernandes and a first Reds goal for Marcel Sabitzer saw Erik ten Hag's side come from a goal behind to progress to the semi-finals.
Antony came on in the second half of the fixture and was lively during his influential cameo on the right flank, that included playing the pass to Jadon Sancho, in the build-up to the handball incident.
Following the victory, our no.21 replied to Usain's prediction on Twitter, saying: "Nice job, @usainbolt! 3-1 United!!"

During Bolt's visit to the Theatre of Dreams, the iconic Olympian also had the chance to meet with United bosses past and present.

Reaching the semi-finals of the competition, the Reds will return to Wembley Stadium, with Brighton & Hove Albion our opponents.
With that in mind, Antony and his United team-mates expressed their joy on social media after the final whistle, ahead of our return to the venue where we won the Carabao Cup back in February...
Into the semifinals 💪🏾 Thanks God 🙏🏾 pic.twitter.com/ea5jzYbo0H— Fred Rodrigues (@Fred08oficial) March 19, 2023
