New Delhi: Sprint king Usain Bolt is set to compete at his final Olympic Games in Rio next month.

If fully fit, there is every chance the Jamaican will repeat his performance from London 2012.

Like most athletes from the Caribbean, Bolt too believes in the simple life mantra of 'play hard and party harder'.

Speaking to The Telegraph, the legend revealed some very interesting details about his approach towards life beyond the track.

Despite being in a relationship for the last two years, Bolt said it was difficult for him to be with one woman.

'You get famous, there’s so much pressure of girls wanting you. And for you to get married at 21, you have not lived one bit. It’s hard for you to stay with one woman because girls are literally just throwing themselves at you; and then you have the girls that the tabloids encourage pretty much to try to get with you. And that’s unfair to us guys – it’s hard to say no, you know what I mean?," he said.

Bolt also compared Jamaican and British cultures in terms of what the society expects from celebrities.

"Like, Rooney got married so young – all the footballers that are English, as soon as they get really famous they have to get married. And I think it’s unfair to them," he further added.

In a few days from now, news about Bolt's personal life will take a backseat.

Already considered the greatest sprinter, fans will want to see what the Jamaican achieve at his swan song.
