Usain Bolt celebrates his 26th birthday on Tuesday, August 21, 2012.

Sources close to the sprinter told Urban Islandz that he celebrated his birthday in Europe with close family and friends.

The 6-foot-5 Jamaican sprinter is still celebrating his impressive performance at this summer’s London Olympic Games with three more gold medals to his name.

Bolt successfully defended his gold medal run in the 100, 200, and 4X100 meter relay. As to whether he will return to the Olympics in four years in Rio is still up in the air.

“Definitely,” Bolt said while appearing on the Jonathan Ross show last weekend. “I’ve seen a couple athlete in their thirties and are doing pretty well, so I think if I pace myself right i can do it.”

Bolt will be competing in three meets in the coming days in Europe before returning to Jamaica, so we are sure he is getting some well needed rest.
