Sprinter Usain Bolt has revealed the name of his baby daughter.

Bolt’s partner Kasi Bennett gave birth to their first child on May 17, and the 33-year-old revealed on Twitter they have named their daughter Olympia Lightning Bolt.

“I want to wish my gf Kasi a happy birthday,” Bolt wrote on Twitter on Tuesday evening.

“I want nothing but happiness for you and will continue to doing my best keeping a smile on your face.

“We have started a new chapter together with our daughter Olympia Lightning Bolt.”

The Jamaican sprinter, who holds world records in the 100 metres, 200 metres and 4 x 100 metres relay, retired from athletics after the 2017 World Championships.
