Six-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt has told how he is hooked on playing the video game Call Of Duty but does not reveal his true identity to opponents.

It means other players never know they are trying to kill the most famous athlete in the world.

He joked: "Once I heard a guy say, 'I'm trying to kill this dude, but he's as fast as Usain Bolt.' I was laughing."

The 27-year-old track star admits he cannot go to bed at night without playing the game.

In an interview with FHM magazine, the world 100m and 200m record holder said: "My evening routine is usually just me playing Call Of Duty. I'm OK at it.

"The people I play against online have no idea they're shooting Usain Bolt. I try not to use my voice."

Players of Call Of Duty can use their name and speak over a microphone during games with opponents.

They can play against people from all over the world.

Bolt added: "I stay up late, I can't help it. I really can't go to bed early. When I compete I try to get to bed at 11pm, but I feel awkward if I try to go to sleep before that.

"My normal bed time is one or two in the morning."
