Usain Bolt smitten by his golden girl

London: Usain Bolt is in love again, if the rumour mill is to be believed.
The world's fastest man Bolt was helped to his triple Olympic gold success by a stunning British model. Curvy Megan Edwards, from Dartford, Kent, focused the mind of the 25-year-old Jamaican with a string of secret dates during London 2012, The Sun reported.
The sprint king, whose 9.58-second 100m is the fastest in history, took an instant shine to gorgeous Megan, 22, as they appeared on the catwalk together to model Jamaica’s team kit ahead of the Games.
It is believed Usain, with a personal fortune estimated at £30MILLION, wasted no time swapping numbers with the accounts worker.
They then warmed up with a series of flirty texts before embarking on a string of romantic dates during the Olympics, The Sun added.
Usain — the highest-paid sprinter of all time — went on to clinch triple Games glory in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay.
And Megan, a junior athlete with Dartford Harriers Athletics club, helped him celebrate his glittering success at an after-party in Brick Lane, East London.
The star received a brilliant reception as he took a turn as a DJ, playing and singing along to Jamaican music while the crowd danced and cheered him on.
“It was crazy, everyone was trying to get a piece of him — especially the girls. But Usain only had eyes for one girl that night, and that was Megan. She was by his side all night,” The Sun quoted a source as saying.
With a queue of stars in tow, the pair headed to West End club Movida at 2am. Bolt went straight to a table with team-mate Yohan Blake, boxers Amir Khan and Lennox Lewis, and hip-hop artist Nas.
A pal of Megan, 22, said: “Everyone was on great form, Usain was high-fiving the other athletes and posing for pictures as they drunk champagne. Megan was in her element and Usain introduced her to Lennox and Yohan and she had her picture taken with them. She’s really smitten with Usain. It’s nothing too serious at the moment as he’s jetting all over the world — but they are two adults having fun.”
