Bolt was at a Hublot watch event in NYC, on Tuesday April 19, promoting his new timepiece when TMZ Sports asked him for a Rihanna love update — since he begged her to call him back in 2013.

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,” Bolt told the TMZ Sports.
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.
Bolt, 29, 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.”
When asked about his current love status, he revealed that he now has his own girlfriend.
“Actually, I do have a girlfriend,” he explained.
The sprinter is preparing for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in August, 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 released the video for her latest single from ANTI, Needed Me, on Wednesday – April 20.
Bolt is once again expected to steal the headlines in Rio as he attempts yet another “three-peat” in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay.
It would take a brave man to bet against the fastest man in the world not picking up three gold medals for Jamaica.
Bolt has, unbelievably, even talked about lowering his current 200m world record to below the magical 19-second barrier.
