A 20-year-old student who appeared in photos in bed with Rio 2016 Olympics hero Usain Bolt says she is ‘dying of shame’ since the snaps went viral.
The pictures of the fastest man in the world were shared on Whatsapp by Jady Duarte and have been circulated widely online.
Local newspaper Extra reports that Duarte says that the impact of the pictures has not been good for her,insisting that she just shared the pics among her friends – and that she didn’t expect the whole of the world to see them.
“It’s very negative. I never wanted to be famous, I’m dying of shame.”
“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.”
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.”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.”
He was also said to be following her as she was one of just 104 people he was following – but that ‘follow’ appears to have since been deleted.
