Ahead of the league opener in Chennai, the celebrated Jamaican sprinter posted a photo of himself in an RCB jersey on Twitter, extending support to and the entire (RCB) team.

Bolt and Kohli are associated with the global sportswear brand PUMA which recently announced a long-term partnership deal with the Bangalore-based franchise as its official kit partner.

In his tweet supporting RCB, Bolt also established his supremacy in his usual wittiest style as he wrote: "Challengers, just letting you know, I'm still the fastest cat around. @imVkohli @ABdeVilliers17 @pumacricket @RCBTweets."

To this, AB de Villiers replied: "We know whom to call when we need a few extra runs! @usainbolt @pumacricket."

Earlier last week, the batting legends Kohli and De Villiers had engaged in a cheeky Twitter banter that saw the South African challenging the RCB skipper Kohli for a race.

The opener between RCB and Mumbai Indians will be played on April 9.
