Kingston, Jamaica:

The world's fastest man has received another top honor in his Caribbean homeland.

Sprint superstar Usain Bolt was named an ambassador-at-large by Jamaica Prime Minister Bruce Golding during a ceremony in the capital, Kingston, on Thursday. He was also granted a diplomatic passport.

At 23, Bolt is the youngest person to receive the honor.

Last month, he received the Order of Jamaica. His homeland has also renamed a highway after the lanky Olympic and world 100 and 200-meter champion and record-holder.

Bolt said he will try his best "to live up to the high expectations."
