Bolt brings 'Jamaican culture' to the world

The tabloid headline declared : "Sexy student 'dying of shame' after night with Usain Bolt is widow of drug lord shot dead by cops after murdering teenage girl".
Let us pause first to mourn the decline of the tabloid headline, which in this online form takes longer to read than it takes said Usain Bolt to run the 200 metres. And let us note that they were trying to inject some level of embarrassment, even of "shame" into this story, though it is the alleged shame of the sexy student, not of the running god who had just completed the awe-inspiring 'triple treble' the night before.
There are not many men these days who can sustain no damage to their 'brand', having gone to bed with a woman who is not their official partner, who sends pictures of the event to her friends on WhatsApp, images which are then shared with the world's media.
