The Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt has become a father to twin boys, Thunder Bolt and Saint Leo Bolt.

Bolt, 34, and his partner, Kasi Bennett, announced the news in a Father’s Day Instagram post, with a lightning bolt emoji next to each of their three children’s names. The couple have a daughter, Olympia Lightning, aged one.

While Thunder Bolt is a clear play on words, Saint Leo is the middle name of the Jamaican athlete considered the greatest sprinter of all time.

An 11-time world champion, Bolt retired after the 2017 World Championships in London, where he suffered a hamstring injury in the final race of his career.

The couple posted photographs of themselves with their children, their newborn sons seemingly asleep in wicker cribs while their sister held a ball. A caption by Bennett read: “Happy Father’s Day to my forever love! Usain Bolt. You are the rock of this family and the greatest daddy to our little ones. We love you world without end!”
