Usain Bolt had a storming Rio 2016 Olympics, bagging gold medals in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay.

However, the Jamaican athlete now finds himself at the centre of a scandal after photos emerged of him in bed with 20-year-old Brazilian student Jady Duarte.

Photos of the pair, which reportedly originated from Duarte’s WhatsApp message, have been making their way around the web faster than a Bolt 100m dash.

The photographs of Bolt, published on Brazilian sites including El Globo, were reportedly taken after the Olympian went out celebrating his 30th birthday in Rio.

The intimate bedroom photos leave Bolt with some explaining to do; his long-term girlfriend Kasi Bennett deleted her Twitter account after the images emerged.

Duarte is also said to be mortified at the pictures coming out. She said that she was unaware of Bolt’s athletics fame when taking the snaps.

“It’s very negative. I never wanted to be famous, I’m dying of shame,” the Daily Mail quotes her as saying.

“It was not a big deal. It was normal. I’d rather not talk about it – in order not to complicate matters. Like I said, it was normal.”
