A student who apparently spent the night with Olympic legend Usain Bolt after he celebrated his 30th birthday says she is ‘dying of shame’ after photos emerged of her encounter.
Jady Duarte, 20, posted WhatsApp pictures that appear to show her kissing and cuddling the sprint king Bolt – who has a long-term girlfriend.
In one of the photos – which first appeared on several Brazilian websites including El Globo after Duarte shared them with friends – Bolt seems to give Duarte a kiss on the cheek while she looks into the camera.
The Jamaican sprinter, who turned 30 on Sunday, was also pictured partying until the early hours of Sunday morning at All In, a club in the Barra de Tijuca suburb of Rio.
The DailyMail.com has reached out to Bolt’s agents for comment.
It was a wild end to the sprinter’s third and apparently final Olympics where he won another three gold medals, cementing his legacy as one of the greatest sprinters of all time.
In typical fashion, the flamboyant runner took to the stage at the De Bracos Albertas club – delighting revellers and fans in the process.
Bolt, who has a girlfriend of two years at home in Jamaica who he calls his ‘First Lady’, also attracted the attention of Duarte, who shared photos of herself in bed with the superstar on WhatsApp early Sunday morning.
The intimate photos show the star curled with the student at 7am local time. Speaking to local newspaper Extra, Duarte said that the impact of the pictures had left her mortified.
She explains: ‘It’s very negative. I never wanted to be famous, I’m dying of shame.’
Duarte did not reveal what happened next – other than to say: ‘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.’
Local newspaper Extra also said she claimed to have no idea who Bolt was.
Duarte says she was at the club All In in Barra in the West Zone of Rio, with friends when ‘Bolt spotted her’.She said: ‘He sent a security guard to call me over. We spoke quickly.
‘But at that moment I didn’t know it was him, because there were many Jamaicans who looked similar.’
Duarte wasn’t the only woman to catch Bolt’s eye on Saturday night – a video posted to Twitter showed him twerking enthusiastically with another local girl during his evening out.
He sang and danced just hours after earning three Olympic gold medals. Bolt thus completed a triple triple, as he also won the 100 meters, the 200 meters and the 4×100-meter relay in 2008 in Beijing and 2012 in London.
Meanwhile his sister had just revealed that Bolt had a long-term girlfriend – 26-year-old Kasi Bennett.
Bolt and Bennett have been dating for more than two years and were likely to get engaged soon, according to Christine Bolt-Hylton.
But Bennett shared a cryptic tweet on Sunday. Someone commented on the world ‘discovering’ Bolt’s girlfriend, saying Bennett was ‘hot’.
Bennett replied: ‘I wish there was no discovery, but thank you so much. That’s really sweet of you.’
