Usain Bolt, the world's fastest man, says he is unbeatable right now. Speaking to the media in Bangalore on Tuesday, the Olympic sprint champion said he would love to compete with a cheetah and will not let anyone beat him. "A cheetah would be cool to compete with... can see the headline - Usain Bolt beats Cheetah", the showman said.

"I will not let anyone beat me," said Bolt, adding American sprinter Justin Gatlin, Tyson Gay and Yohan Blake were strong challengers. The Jamaican legend, on a charity visit to India, said there was no substitute to hard work and how he trained for six hours every day to remain in shape.

"If you want to be great, you have to work hard," said Bolt, who grew up idolizing basketball great Kevin Garnett. Bolt, who holds the world records in both 100 and 200m, said he had raised the bar that will be hard to touch. The 28-year-old Bolt has run the 100m in a world record timing of 9:58 seconds.

The first man to win six Olympic sprint gold medals, Bolt wants to race a season after the 2016 Rio Olympics. "Let's see after that. No I am not going to be an actor but you never know what the future holds," said the Lighting Bolt.

Can India produce world class sprinters? Bolt said: "In India, it's all about cricket. In Jamaica, it's all about running. Schools compete to produce athletes." Bolt, who loves to play cricket and has even bowled Chris Gayle, will be competing with Yuvraj Singh in a match to raise funds for charity.
