Usain Bolt is omni-present even when he's not racing. There was a terrific photo spread in Tuesday's Sun (duh, of course I read Brit rags; the Ozzie Nelson part of me reads The Guardian, the Ozzy Osbourne part reads The Sun) that included a picture of Prince Harry jumping out of his seat to cheer on Bolt in the 100 metres, wearing a reggae-colored scarf. Better yet, The Sun had a picture of Bolt sitting on the bed in his room with three members of the Swedish women's handball team (stop snickering).

Bolt also tweeted a picture later that showed him holding up three fingers on an unmade bed, which got tongues wagging.
