Celebrating Bolt-style 
Usain Bolt is different in every way. Even when it comes to celebrations and telling the world how he did it! After defending his Olympic title in 9.63 second and spending two hours giving interviews, Bolt returned to his room in the Olympic Village, not alone but with three stunning Swedish handball players. Most athletes would have kept quiet, but Bolt posed with the three stunners, who were given special access to him by his coach at 3 am in the morning. Bolt tweeted the picture to the whole world.

That was not all. He tweeted another picture next morning, sitting alone in the bed and messaging, “I am up and ready and to go again.” That was with reference to 200m!

The three ladies were apparently Jamima Roberts, Ulrika Agren and Isabella Gullden. The Swedish handball team lost all its matches. But who cares! They had Bolt for the night!
