Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Usain Bolt is a pretty popular guy and now he has a new friend.

The world's fastest man, has adopted a Cheetah at the Nairobi Animal Orphanage. Leah's been looking into the story.

The world record holder named the two-month-old cub Lightening Bolt during the launch of the Animal Adoption Programme.

And Usain seemed to enjoy getting to know his new buddy. He bottle fed the cub and the pair had a bit of a cuddle.
