Back in Septem­ber, it was be­lieved that the Olympic cham­pion de­cided to put a mark on his re­tire­ment from sprint­ing by propos­ing to his long-term girl­friend Kasi Ben­nett. More than three months later, the ath­lete has an­nounced that the pho­tos from the so­cial me­dia plat­form Snapchat al­legedly cel­e­brat­ing his en­gage­ment to Ben­nett were in fact edited by some­body else to trick fans.

Bolt claimed to have shared pho­tos of the cou­ple on their lux­u­ri­ous get­away in Bora Bora that some­how wound up in the hands of some­one else.

In an in­ter­view with ITV, Usain con­fessed, “I’m not en­gaged. My girl­friend and I went on a trip to Bora Bora. Some­body edited pic­ture on my Snapchat and said, "she said yes" with a ring. It was well done though.'

Usain Bolt hasn’t popped the big ques­tion to Kasi Ben­nett as yet, how­ever, his fam­ily is im­pa­tiently wait­ing for him to set­tle down and have baby Bolt’s to look af­ter, he claims, “My mum is pres­sur­ing me.”

Chris­tine Bolt-Hyl­ton, sis­ter of Usain Bolt says, “the star and his girl­friend Kasi are a solid cou­ple and will stay to­gether be­cause they are so in love.” She con­tin­ued, “I’m sure Kasi will be used to it by now. She is used to see­ing pic­tures like this. Peo­ple ask for pic­tures with him and he is al­ways willing to have pic­tures. She is used to him be­ing in the public do­main.”

The night be­fore his in­ter­view with ITV Bolt was the cen­tre of at­ten­tion while he at­tended the world pre­miere of his doc­u­men­tary, ‘I Am Bolt’ in Lon­don. Af­ter the pre­miere in Odeon Le­ices­ter Square, he switched up his navy blue suit for jeans and a hoodie just in time for the af­ter party at Hotspot Tape. He shared his big night out with many stars in­clud­ing, Justin Bieber, Liam Payne, Salma Hayek, and Mo Farah.
