Among millions of fans of the Virat Kohli-led side, it is a Jamaican legend whose show of affection towards Bangalore and its star players Kohli and AB de Villiers is breaking the internet. He is none other than the legendary sprinter Usain Bolt.

The multiple Olympic gold medal winner did not attempt to hide his emotions for RCB as he donned the RCB jersey and took to social media to wish the best for the side who are yet to win their maiden title. Following Bolt's post, Kohli and De Villiers also responded to the 34-year-old's message.

In wishing RCB, Bolt was quick to establish his supremacy. "Challengers, just letting you know, I’m still the fastest cat around. @imVkohli @ABdeVilliers17 @pumacricket @RCBTweets," he captioned a picture of himself in RCB colours.

"No doubt and that's why we've got you on our team now," Kohli replied. "We know whom to call when we need a few extra runs! @usainbolt @pumacricket," said De Villiers.
