The choice of the children's names took social media by storm.

"Listen, when your name is Bolt and you're the fastest man alive, the universe is telling you to do all the cool things with the baby names," wrote a Twitter user.

An 11-time world champion, Bolt retired after the 2017 World Championships in London where he suffered a hamstring injury in the final race of his career.
