Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt has been invited to address a Vatican conference on religious liberty.

The 100m and 200m world record holder, who defended his Olympic titles in both of those events at the 2012 London Games, is open about his Catholic beliefs.

Triple-gold medal winner Bolt is known for making the Sign of the Cross before racing competitively and has the middle name 'Saint Leo'.

Didier Drogba and former NBA Basketball star Vlade Divac are among the other sporting stars who have been invited to participate.
