Usain Bolt's best quotes: spiders, impressing women, and being a legend

Usain Bolt has had his fair share of attention as the world's fastest man but his honest ponderings on life also haven't gone unnoticed.

Some of the Jamaican sprinter's most memorable quotes aren't about athletics but that all important topic: the opposite sex. 

"Women always find out when you lie," he once said. "Always. No matter what, they always find out."

And when it comes to keeping himself fit, the multi Olympic gold medallist doesn't always expound the obvious health and career benefits.

"When I'm at the gym, I think about chicks, going to the beach, and looking good. I do it for the girls".

Bolt has also made some insightful comments about his record-breaking career.

"People come to see you run fast, but they also come to see a show, a performance...that's what I give them."

With success often comes confidence, but Bolt takes a somewhat measured approach: "I wouldn't say I'm a phenomenon, just a great athlete."
