Usain Bolt sparks social media frenzy with the AWESOME names of his twins

The world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, and his partner Kasi Bennett have announced the birth of their twin sons.

The couple posted photos of themselves with the twins and their third child on social media on Father’s Day, sparking a barrage of congratulatory messages for the pair.

However, it wasn’t just the first shots of the twins that had people talking on Twitter.

Bolt and Kasi, whose first daughter was appropriately named Olympia Lightning Bolt, posted that their twins would be called Thunder Bolt and Saint Leo Bolt.

Thunder, like Lightning, is an obvious reference to the surname ‘Bolt’, while Saint Leo is named after his father.

Of course, fans who were thunderstruck (pun intended) by the name choices and took to social media to share their thoughts.
