Olympic champion Usain Bolt has claimed that he wants to create an athletics-themed restaurant with celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay.

The Jamaican runner, who snatched gold in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay finals at London 2012, has stated that he wants to combine his two favourite passions - sport and food.

"The problem with most themed restaurants is that the quality of the food never quite comes up to the same level as the style," The Sun quotes Bolt as saying.

"If I ever did it, I would need to go in with the best. Gordon Ramsay would be the best. He is the best chef in the world and he has personality as well."

Meanwhile, Bolt has claimed that he will defend his 100m and 200m titles in the Rio Olympic Games in 2016.
