Commonwealth Games 200m record holder Jereem Richards has one wish when he collects his gold medal – he would like to hear the T&T anthem played on our national instrument.

«I Need To Hear The National Anthem With The Steel Pan please 🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹🇹»
He tagged the Commonwealth Games’ official Twitter account in his tweet.
