A BARMAID from humble West Norwood told yesterday how the world’s fastest man Usain Bolt did a runner - after a secret year-long fling with her.
Sexy Rebeckah Passley, 23 - who Jamaica’s Olympic superstar pulled in south east London - said: "I feel heartbroken. He’s the best lover I’ve ever had.
“Usain might be quick on the track but he takes his time in bed. He knows how to treat a woman.”
The bargirl was convinced the sprinter - who set a 100-metre record at 9.58 seconds - had fallen head over heels for her.
But their affair, known only to his inner circle, hit the rocks amid claims he was seeing other women.
No slouch … Bolt in race mode
Rebeckah said: "Girls were popping up in the press claiming they were dating him. He told me it was all nonsense.
“But it did have a bad effect on our relationship - and we have had no contact for a month.”
The athlete, 24, whisked his secret girlfriend all over the world to be with him after wooing her in June last year.
Rebeckah had gone to a track meeting at Crystal Palace, near her home, when he got his manager to invite her to a team party in West Ham.
She shared the back seat of Bolt’s chauffeured car.
At the bash he put his arm round her, saying: “You’re mine.” Rebeckah said: "He did it in a jokey way. He was a gentleman. We danced together all night.
Girlfriend … Rebeckah with Usain
“He’s an excellent kisser. He’s a better kisser than he is a dancer.”
Bolt, who is also 200-metre champion, jetted off the next day to another athletics engagement - but returned within a week. Rebeckah said:
We spent the weekend together in Teddington. He’s a very attractive man. When he takes his top off he’s got such a defined physique.
His arms are so muscular and so are his legs.
Obviously you wouldn’t necessarily notice all this when he’s got his clothes on. But when they’re off you can see he’s a very sexy man.
In January they spent a month together in Jamaica.
Rebeckah - a promising triple jumper until injury ended her athletics career - said of the women there: “They saw me as a foreigner who had come to steal their man. Everywhere I went I got daggers from women.”
She learned Bolt was partial to the odd GUINNESS, loves DOMINOES and has a collection of hundreds of BASEBALL CAPS. Rebeckah said: “He likes hugs and kisses. He’s a bit of a mummy’s boy in that respect.”
She sighed: “Friends tell me we’ll get back together but I’m not sure we will.”
