Usain Bolt and his partner, Kasi Bennett, are being trolled over their newborn twins’ names.

The Olympian revealed he had welcomed twin boys in an Instagram post on Father’s Day.

He captioned it: “Olympia Lightning Bolt. Saint Leo Bolt. Thunder Bolt.”

However, it seems not everybody is impressed with the chosen monikers.

One person wrote: “What if they’re not fast though?”

“Thunder Bolt best not be slow,” a second remarked.

Others were kinder and claimed the names were ‘pretty cool’.

“Dopest names on the planet,” one fan stated.

Joking, another added: “Who said Lightning doesn’t strike the same place twice?!”

Bolt became a father for the first time last year.

The happy news was surprisingly confirmed by the Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness.

He wrote on Twitter: “Congratulations to our sprint legend Usain Bolt and Kasi Bennett on the arrival of their baby girl!”

One person replied to the tweet, writing: “Bet she’s gonna be an athlete! Like father like daughter.”

Bolt has previously opened up about how he wouldn’t want his children to follow in his footsteps as an athlete due to the ‘pressure’ that comes with it.

He told People: “People always say, ‘Are you going to put your kids in sports?’ But for me, if they want to be in sports, fine, I don’t really care. But, I won’t push them to do track and field. I think it’s going to be hard.”

“I think it’s the hardest thing when you have a dad that is a superstar in a supersport, I don’t think you should do that sport.
“I think you should do something else because there is so much pressure on you to live up to expectations.”
