But Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt is also a world-beater when it comes to hosting noisy parties, according to his neighbours on the Caribbean island.

Jodi ‘Jinx’ Stewart-Henriques, a model who lives nextdoor to Bolt in an upmarket housing complex in Kingston, has complained about loud all-night revelry at the runner's house since she moved to the area two years ago.

In comments on Facebook reported by Mailonline, she said: "Between the bikes, loud, horrid music, parties and screams, I honestly wish he would go back to where he came from. He’s a horrible neighbour. He takes his nasty behaviour with him everywhere. He’s the ultimate party clown."

Another resident branded Bolt "the neighbour from hell", adding: "He has parties which start in the afternoon and go on until 3am, 4am, whatever he chooses. This is a nice neighbourhood but he has shattered the calm."

Others, though, told the newspaper that Bolt had not been at the house for weeks and was not to blame for the loud party last weekend that prompted Ms Stewart-Henriques outburst.

Jamaica’s police commissioner, Dr Carl Williams, said: "Police are aware of these complaints and have done something about it. I cannot say exactly what has been done but it is possible that we have spoken to Mr Bolt.

‘As far as I am concerned, the matter has been dealt with."

Bolt did not comment.
