After having had to stay in the Olympic village while other athletes were pictured out partying, Usain Bolt was finally unleashed Saturday last. The triple gold winning sprinter dropped by the Puma Yard, in Brick Lane, to show off his amazing skills as an MC and DJ. The 25-year-old proved that he is not only the fastest man in the world but he can also work a crowd with his skills behind the decks. With the venue packed out, Usain took centre stage as everybody wanted to see what he could do on the microphone. The showman didn't let them down as he put his sunglasses on his head back to front and began to reel off a few lines to raucous applause.

Like a true rap star, he even had a hype man as part of his entourage in the shape of 200m bronze medallist Warren Weir, who also took to the mic. Speaking at the Shoreditch club in London, he said: "I came here to become a legend and I am now so I'm very pleased with myself".

Connor Cruise follows in dad's footsteps

His famous father has played the hero with action roles in films like Top Gun and Mission: Impossible. And now Connor Cruise is joining him in the spotlight in his first major acting role in the remake of Eighties teen action film Red Dawn. The 17-year-old plays Daryl Bates in the movie, a member of armed resistance forces the Wolverines. Connor made his film debut in 2008 with a small role, playing a young Will Smith in Seven Pounds. His new film, due out in cinemas on November 21, is about a group of teenagers who look to save their Washington State town from an invasion of North Korean soldiers. Directed by Bourne Supremacy and Spiderman stunt co-ordinator Dan Bradley, the action thriller stars ubiquitous Aussie heartthrob Chris Hemsworth. Other leads in the movie are rising star Josh Hutcherson of The Hunger Games fame, and Isabel Lucas, another young Australian whose career in Tinseltown is currently in high gear. Tom Cruise and former wife Nicole Kidman adopted Connor in 1995, six years before their separation in 2001. His older sister Isabella was adopted in 1992. Isabella and Connor are siblings to Suri Cruise, the daughter of recently divorced Tom and Katie.

Pitt to marry Jolie at their French chateau next Saturday

Preparations for a huge party at the French home of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had sparked fevered speculation that they were secretly preparing to marry last weekend. But despite the furore, Mickael Latz, mayor of the nearby village of Correns, has now claimed it is 'more likely' the wedding will take place this Saturday. He told the Sunday Express: "It's a far more likely date. There are no plans for a civil wedding in Correns this weekend."

Brad and Angelina's engagement was revealed back in April, after seven years and six children together.

Yesterday, visitors claimed they had seen deliveries of food and champagne, a marquee being erected and Brad's parents arriving at the £35million Chateau Miraval — sparking speculation they were planning to tie the knot in secret. A source told The Sun newspaper: "Brad flew in to oversee preparations but they're all here now.

"They say it's for Jane and Bill, but some think this could be it. Even Angelina's private jeweller is here."

Guests are said to include George Clooney, who is currently a short flight away at his home on Lake Como, Italy, and jewellery designer Robert Procop, who created Angelina's $250,000 diamond and platinum engagement ring.

The source added: "There's a real buzz around the estate."

It is thought that the couple will wed in a private chapel on the grounds of their home, with civil ceremonies in France only allowed in town halls.
