Jamaican sprint king Usain Bolt revealed he is not engaged to girlfriend Kasi Bennett, contrary to what was reported in the media.

In September, pictures of the couple's Bora Bora holiday emerged which looked like Bolt had popped the question to Bennett and she said yes.

After three months of speculation, the 30-year-old has revealed that the Snapchat images showing him celebrating his engagement with the 26-year-old beauty were, in fact, edited by another user to trick fans, according to Daily Mail.

"I'm not engaged. Me and my girlfriend went on a trip to Bora Bora.

"Somebody edited the picture on my Snapchat and said "she said yes" with a ring. It was well done though," the sprinter was quoted as saying in ITV's Lorraine Kelly show yesterday.
