Usain Bolt became a father

Eight-time Olympic champion Jamaican Sprinter Usain Bolt and his girlfriend Kasi Bennett have become parents said Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness.

“Congratulations to our sprint legend Usain Bolt and Kasi Bennett on the birth of your baby girl,” Holness wrote on his Twitter account.

Bolt, who will turn 34 in August, won gold in the 100 and 200 meters, as well as in the 4×100 meters relay at three Olympics – in Beijing (in 2008), London (2012), and Rio de Janeiro (2016). He was subsequently stripped of a gold medal in the 2008 games relay due to a positive doping test by teammate Nesta Carter.

Bolt is an 11-time world champion and holds world records in the 100 and 200 meters. The Jamaican completed a career in athletics after the World Championships 2017 in London
