According to Daily Mail yesterday, the two staff members were on duty at the Hampden training ground on Wednesday when they approached the Jamaican star for a photo.
The officials were sacked by a supervisor. The report stated that a statement by the company confirmed the guards in question had been removed from their roles at the Games for breaching their conditions of employment, but were still employed at the firm.
Officials have told staff at the CWG to be professional and not approach athletes for 'selfies'.
An official from the Commonwealth Games, Glasgow 2014, said: "When Bolt is in house, people are reminded he's here to compete and not to pose for personal photos.
"People are reminded to concentrate on their jobs and the job at hand."
