Usain Bolt shows off his superhuman speed as lightning-fast hero ‘Super Bolt’

New pictures reveal Usain Bolt as you’ve never seen him before – as he unveils his superhero alias, ‘Super Bolt’.

The eight-time Olympic gold medallist’s costume features the yellow, green and black of the Jamaican flag.

Bolt’s lightning-fast look eclipses the superhero-inspired outfit worn by Serena Williams during her French Open comeback earlier in the week.

Now retired, the 31-year-old looks to be in great shape in his all-in-one outfit - which also includes a power source on his chest similar to Iron Man’s arc reactor.

As the current 100 and 200 metre sprint world record holder even the likes of Lex Luthor, Thanos or the Joker would think twice before battling the athletics legend.

The pictures of ‘Super Bolt’ were taken for a new advert by Virgin Media, which also commissioned a poll of 1,000 UK adults and found four in 10 Brits wish they were a superhero.

Jeff Dodds, managing director of consumer at Virgin Media, said: “Usain Bolt has long been considered a sporting superhero thanks to his lightning-fast speed.

The research also found Man of steel, Superman, and princess of the Amazons, Wonder Woman, are the superheroes men and women respectively most want to be.

It also emerged invisibility is the superpower most Brits would like to have, followed by the ability to fly and power to time travel in joint-second place - along with super-healing in third.

But with one foot back in reality, Brits revealed their actual ‘super’ powers – and the ability to be very polite topped the list.

Other ‘special’ abilities include remembering birthdays, pretending to sound interested and being good at queuing.

While it’s unlikely those polled will be battling intergalactic threats anytime soon, many have a definite opinion on what they’d wear in the event they miraculously developed superpowers.

Three in 10 would adorn a cape – a wardrobe staple for many a superhero – and 44 per cent would keep their identity hidden by wearing a mask.

Dealing with criminals and evil masterminds is dirty business so 45 per cent would literally and figuratively keep their hands clean by wearing gloves.

Six in 10 would complement their costume with a pair of boots and 43 per cent plump for a tight fitting body suit.

Around two-thirds would top it off with a symbol – the most popular ones being a peace symbol, a star and a flag representing the country of their birth.

However, half revealed their dark side and admitted they relate to supervillains – women polled feel the strongest connection to Catwoman and men have the biggest affinity with the Joker.

Carried out through OnePoll.com , the research also found 54 per cent wish they had the physique of a superhero.

Men are most envious of Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Christopher Reeve’s Superman’s of finely sculpted muscles.

And women are especially jealous of Halle Berry’s Catwoman – just ahead of the Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman.

Jeff Dodds added: “Superheroes have never been more popular and that’s certainly evident in the survey results.

“It’s remarkable just how many of us wish they could be a superhero – who wouldn’t want super powers?”

Virgin Media’s ‘Switch to Super’ campaign launches today (Friday 1 June 2018) – this will see the broadband speed of its best-selling bundles for new customers doubled for free. (www.mirror.co.uk)
