London: Usain Bolt has released his first song ‘Faster Than Lightning’ online, along with a video to help him outfox his opponents at the London Olympics this summer.

On the track, the 25-year-old sprinter has got a DJ called Steve Porter to mix a house beat to Bolt making a motivational speech, the Sun reported.

The Jamaican sporting icon almost sounds like a rapper, with such lines as: “I need to go faster, I need to work harder, I need to keep driving to the finish.

“No matter who you are, no matter what you’re doing, you’re not gonna catch me, you’re not gonna beat me."

“When I hit the top speed I turn on the afterburner,” he sings on the track.

It’s a surprisingly decent song, like a sports version of Baz Luhrmann’s Sunscreen.

Bolt, who has previously made guest appearances as a reggae DJ, has no plans to release the song officially.
