Sprinting star Usain Bolt has hinted he’s engaged to long-term girlfriend Kasi Bennett, indicating the couple have have decided to put his scandal in Rio behind them.

At the moment on a post-Olympics holiday together on the luxury South Pacific Island of Bora Bora, the sprinter and Bennett have been posting loved-up poolside photos from the idyllic location.

But on Tuesday, Bolt surprised fans with a particularly romantic Snapchat post.

“She said yes,” read the caption, along with an image of the couple wearing matching flower necklaces on board a boat.

The news might not come as a surprise to Bolt’s sister Christine Bolt-Hylton, who told media during the Rio Olympics she believed her brother was in it for the long haul.

“I would say that there’s a very strong possibility they’ll get engaged when he comes home,” she said.
