The Jamaican sprinter won yesterday's 200m men's final to make history at London 2012.
Little Mix and Wretch 32 are among a number of stars to congratulate Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt after he made history last night in the 200m sprint at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The 25 year-old runner became the first person to successfully defend both the 100m and 200m titles on Thursday evening (9th August), after picking up the gold at last night's race in a clean sweep from the Jamaicans.
Usain's fellow countrymen Yohan Blake and Warren Weir picked up the silver and bronze medals, respectively, following his gold medal winning victory in the 100m sprint earlier this week (5th August).
"So so proud to be quarter Jamaican :) Leigh x #Olympics2012," Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock tweeted straight after Usain's athletics victory, in between promotion work for The X Factor 2011 winners' brand new single 'Wings'.
Wretch 32, who is currently hard at work on his second studio album, also had praise for the popular sports star.
"Good final well done every1 contrast weir blake and of course the gold medallist usain bolt," the UK rapper tweeted, while 'Elephant' singer Alexandra Burke simply posted: "So proud right now! Jamaica jamaica owwww!!!"

Following Usain's 100m sprint victory last weekend the likes of JLS and Rizzle Kicks all praised his speed and skill at this year's Olympic Games.
When asked whether he would consider running to defend his titles for a third time at the Rio De Janeiro Olympic Games in 2016, Usain admitted he is still unsure.
"I think I've had my time," he told The Guardian. "In life, anything is possible but that's going to be a hard reach."
