The world's fastest man, Usain Bolt, has opened up about allegations of being a womaniser, revealing that his interaction with the opposite sex is a part of Jamaican culture and that people should not label him.
The nine-time Olympic Gold winner was embroiled in a controversy earlier this year when a 20-year-old Rio student named Jady Duarte reportedly shared photos of herself in bed with the Jamaican sprinter. The "triple-triple" winner was also seen twerking with an unidentified woman while celebrating his birthday at a Rio nightclub on 21 August.
According to HollywoodLife, the Jamaican superstar was filmed with a young woman dressed in a white crop top and blue jeans. Bolt can be seen in a graphic black and white T-shirt paired with blue jeans and a red cap. However, the Jamaican legend has asked people not to label him and hurl insults at him.
"The British press is always trying to make me out to be this bad guy who loves women and how all I do is women and stuff. I was telling this English press guy, you can't judge a different culture by your own culture. In England when you get famous the first thing you do is get married and have kids. In Jamaica it's different, like my parents had me and they got married 11 years later", Bolt told GQ magazine.
"In Jamaica we wine on each other. It's our culture. People see it the first time, they're like, What is going on? It's like they are having sex in the club! No, that's just the culture. It's how we are."
Despite the controversies, Bolt showed everyone why he is the biggest athlete in the world, winning gold medals in the 100, 200 and 4X100m relay, thereby becoming the first sprinter to win gold in three consecutive Olympic Games.
