The sprint superstar reportedly went home with a young student who didn’t even know he was supposedly famous.

Legendary nine-time gold medal Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt appears to have celebrated his three-medal Olympic haul in Rio de Janeiro with one of the locals, who was only too happy to share pics of herself with the nearly 2m-tall superstar on social media.

The Daily Mail has reported that the woman in question is 20-year-old student Jady Duarte, 20, who shared WhatsApp pictures of her appearing to embracing a bare-chested Bolt.

This is apparently news because Bolt, according to his sister, has a long-term girlfriend and was reportedly planning to get married.

He turned 30 on Sunday and partied all night at a club in the Barra de Tijuca suburb of Rio.

Most bizarrely, Duarte told a local paper in Brazil that she hadn’t even realised the guy she was with was supposedly famous.
