A twenty-year-old student from Rio has shared photos of what appears to be her with Usain Bolt after a wild night of partying on the final weekend of the Olympics.
Jady Duarte shared WhatsApp pictures that show her wearing a white top while embracing a bare-torsoed Bolt – who has a long-term girlfriend.
In one of the photos – which first appeared on several Brazilian websites including El Globo after Duarte shared them with friends – Bolt seems to give Duarte a kiss on the cheek while she looks into the camera.
The Jamaican sprinter, who turned 30 on Sunday, was also pictured partying until the early hours of the morning at All In, a club in the Barra de Tijuca suburb of Rio.
Bolt, who has a girlfriend of two years at home in Jamaica who he calls his ‘First Lady’, also attracted the attention of 20-year-old Duarte who shared photos of herself in bed with the superstar on Whatsapp early Sunday morning.
The intimate photos show the star curled up in bed with the student at 7am local time this morning.
Speaking to local newspaper Extra, Duarte said she hadn’t realized that she was with a famous athlete and described their nocturnal encounter as ‘normal’.
Jady Duarte, the 20-year-old student who shared Whatsapp pictures of Usain Bolt relaxing in bed with her after an apparent sexual romp says she is “dying of shame” after the snaps went viral.
Bolt appears to give Duarte a kiss on the cheek while she stares into the camera.
It is not clear whether he knew that snap was being taken at the time.
Local newspaper Extra reports that Duarte says that the impact of the pictures has not been good for her.
She explains: “It’s very negative. I never wanted to be famous, I’m dying of shame.”
Duarte insisted that she just shared the pics among her friends – and that she didn’t expect the whole of the world to see them.
She added: “I just sent it to the group of my girlfriends, now you see…
“I just sent and said ‘anyone who saw the Olympics will know who is.”
Local newspaper Extra also reports she also claimed to have no idea who Bolt was – despite the extrovert sprinter’s notorious worldwide fame.
Duarte says she was at the club All In in Barra in the West Zone of Rio, with friends when “Bolt spotted her”.
“He sent a security guard to call me over. We spoke quickly.
“But at that moment I didn’t know it was him, because there were many Jamaicans who looked similar.”
Duarte fell short of revealing more details of what happened next – other than to say: “It was not a big deal. It was normal.
“I’d rather not talk about it – in order not to complicate matters.
“Like I said, it was normal.”
It’s also emerged that Bolt was allegedly briefly following Duarte on Instagram – one of just 104 people he was following – but that ‘follow’ appears to have since been deleted.
