Rihanna snubbed Olympian Usain Bolt’s request for a date after he declared his love for her.

In 2013 the six-time Olympic gold medallist said he was, “in love” with the Work singer and called on her to “hit me up”.

However despite the Jamaican sprinter’s status as the fastest man of all time, he says she never contacted him to arrange a meet.

“No, she’s given me no love bro, no love zero love.” he tells TMZ.com. Referencing her raunchy video with Drake for her record breaking hit Work he added, “I think she’s getting all the love with Work, Work, Work man.”

The Barbadian musician has recently been pictured getting close to Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio at California’s Coachella music festival, reigniting rumours they’re dating.

Usain doesn’t see the Oscar-winner as worthy competition though, saying, “He’s no competition for me. I’m tall, I’m handsome I’m dark, I’m the greatest.”

Despite the athlete still being up for a meeting, saying he’d attempt to get his “team” to contact the star, Rihanna may have missed the chance to hook-up with Usain as he admits he is now in a relationship.

Arranging a get-together could be difficult as both Usain and his pop star crush have busy years ahead of them.

The sprinter is preparing for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in August (16), while Rihanna is in the middle of a world tour in support of her hit album ANTI.

The record has already spawned one phenomenally successful track – her collaboration with former beau Drake, Work, has spent nine weeks at number one in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Chart, giving the singer her 60th week in total at the top of the American singles chart.

She is set to reveal the video for her latest single from ANTI, Needed Me, on Wednesday (20Apr16).
