New Delhi – He is not going to let anyone beat him and he thinks it would be cool to compete against a cheetah, the world’s fastest man Usain Bolt said today in the Indian city of Bangalore.

Bolt, who is in the city to play a charity cricket match, was addressing a press conference.

Asked who he thought could beat him, Bolt, not known for his modesty, said: “Nobody ... I am not going to let anyone beat me.”

Bolt, who holds the world 100m and 200m records, did add that Justin Gatlin, Tyson Gay and Yohan Blake were great competitors and could be contenders.

“A cheetah would be cool to compete with ... (I) can see the headline ‘Usain Bolt beats cheetah’,” he said.

“If you want to be great you have to work hard,” Bolt added.

The 28-year-old said he trained six hours a day.

Winner of six Olympic golds, Bolt said he wants to run in the 2016 Rio Olympics and the season after. Then “let’s see after that”.
