Usain Bolt shared the news on Snapchat

"Work hard for what u want always #vacation," he wrote alongside a poolside snap.

The sprinter has been making headlines for his stellar success at Rio this summer. Usain completed the men's 100m final in 9.81 seconds, taking home gold and becoming the first athlete to win the event three times at the Olympics.

At the Beijing 2008 tournament, Usain broke the then-world record, running the race in 9.69 seconds. He improved his time at London 2012, crossing the finishing line in 9.63 seconds.

The 30-year-old is on holiday in Bora Bora with his girlfriend

Usain celebrated by partying in Rio, where he is rumoured to have racked up a £6,000 bill in one bar. He was pictured cosying up to different women as he celebrated his 30th birthday, leaving some to suspect that he had been unfaithful to his girlfriend.

Usain and his partner of two years Kasi seem to have brushed off the rumours as they holidayed in Bora Bora.

The athlete's sister Christine has previously insisted that the couple would tie the knot. "I've met her and she's lovely, she's perfect for Usain," she said.

"I would say that there's a very strong possibility they'll get engaged when he comes home [from Rio]. I last saw them in March at Usain's restaurant in Jamaica and they looked very comfortable together, sharing their food and laughing and joking."
