On Monday, Olympian Usain Bolt revealed that he’d taken a novel coronavirus disease test on Saturday. Reports state that the famous runner might have tested positive.


Posting a clip on Instagram, Usain Bolt revealed this week that he’d tested for the novel coronavirus disease. He explained how he had no symptoms but was taking precautions by self-quarantining.

The latest reports come after the runner celebrated his 34th birthday last Friday. He allegedly had a party in Jamaica where face masks weren’t worn by the guests.

According to “Nationwide90fm,” a radio station in Jamaica, Bolt actually contracted the disease. In his posts on social media, the sprinter explained that he was reaching out after seeing stories about him having COVID-19.

However, the former athlete didn’t deny or confirm that he had the virus. He shared how he was in quarantine for precautionary measures.



Bolt’s birthday party last week was a surprise event in his honor. Video footage from the event showed the star laughing and dancing with his guests.

An Adele song could be heard playing at the outdoor party. The eight-time Olympic gold medalist later took to Instagram to describe the event as the “best birthday ever” alongside a picture of him holding his baby girl.



In May 2020, the former athlete celebrated another big milestone in his life. He and his long-time girlfriend, Kasi Bennett, 30, welcomed their first child, a baby girl.



The news was confirmed by the Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness who wrote a congratulatory tweet. It was later reported that the couple had named the child Olympia.



Bolt and Bennett officially became a couple around four years ago. In July 2016, the runner was asked by “The Telegraph,” about his love life and he admitted he’d been seeing someone for two years.


Bolt became the fastest man in the world when he won at the 2016 Olympics held in Rio. He won in the 100, 200, and 4x100 meter races to earn his title.
