Usain Bolt crossed the line to claim his eighth Olympic gold last night in Rio to roars of the crowd – but his biggest fan was cheering him on from home.

Kasi Bennett, who is believed to be Bolt’s girlfriend, has celebrated every one of his sensational victories with almost tangible excitement.

But her social media pages make it clear there was no doubt in her mind that Bolt’s Olympics would be anything less than historic.

My babbbbbbbbbbbyyyyyyyyyyy!!!’ she cheered after he won his third 100m gold medal on Sunday night, adding ‘Wha dem a guh do yah now?’

She followed it with a series of cheering hands, Jamaican flags and love hearts with the hashtag ‘Living Legend’.

Last night, when the Olympian added a third 200m gold to his collection, she added: ‘This level of pride is unfathomable.’

Bolt easily swept his competition and stormed home to clinch the 200m gold in a time of 19.78s.

When he crossed the line, however, Bolt looked bitterly disappointed about his victory – after he failed to beat his own world record of 19.19s.

‘The sadness for me would be that it is actually a slower time. I really wanted to run faster but I came out here to win,’ he said.

‘I wasn’t happy with the time when I crossed the line, but I’m excited I got the medal, that’s the key thing. The fact that I came here and I executed what I wanted is a brilliant feeling.’

He quickly wiped the frown of his face and became the victorious showman that his fans know and love.

‘Number one!’ Bolt yelled into the cameras, after kneeling on the track and hitting his chest in delight.

One Love by another of Jamaica’s famous sons Bob Marley played as Bolt grabbed a Jamaican flag and did his lap of honour, singing along to the lyrics as he jigged and blew kisses to the adoring crowd.

He cupped his ear laughing as they sang ‘Usain Bolt, Usain Bolt’ and then posed for selfies with thrilled members of the crowd.

Toying with the crowd, he at first refused to pull out his trademark ‘Lightening Bolt’ celebration. But after completing his victory lap, he returned to the finishing line, sank to his knees, crossed himself and rose to his feet unveiling his famous sign.

The Jamaican is now hours away from attempting the ‘triple triple’ – winning gold for the 100m, 200m and 4x100m races three years in the row – which will be decided with the relay final tonight in Rio – 2.35am GMT.

And his number one fan Miss Bennett will no doubt be watching the man she lovingly calls her ‘boss’.

‘Excitement today; history tomorrow!’ she tweeted earlier in the Games.
