Bolt’s mum wants him to settle down and have kids


HE may be the world’s fastest man but for all his achievemen­ts Usain Bolt has still one more thing to do for his mother – start a family.

Jennifer Bolt, 54, was very clear when she spoke to reporters at the Olympics in Rio that she’s told her 30-year-old son it’s time to settle down.

Following Bolt’s announceme­nt that he was retiring following the games, Jennifer told reporters she was ready for the pitter-patter of grandchild­ren’s feet.

She said: “The challenge now is to find him a lovely wife. The medals can take care of themselves.

“I want him to settle down, because I don’t want him to be alone. I’m not rushing him, but he knows I’m ready.”

Her comments also came after she told a TV crew: “I would hope he’ll settle down, get married and start his family.”

Bolt is rumoured to be in a relationsh­ip with 26-year-old Brazilian Kasi Bennett but has refused to confirm this.

But just what Kasi makes of his mum’s comments is anyone’s guess.
