Fans took to social media as they believe the timeline doesn’t match up.

One person wrote: “I swear Usain Bolt has a long term babes? So when did him and zara lips”.

Another commented: “Usain Bolt has been with his fiancé for 8 years and Zara is only 25 so either she was a teenager when she kissed him or she’s a homewrecker”.

A third added: “Usain Bolt has been with his partner since 2014...Zara is 25. So we’re saying she was 16 and he was 27?”
