Usain Bolt endorses I-bling

Gold-plated iPod touch

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The world's fastest man is lending his moniker to a gold-plated iPod Touch mod.

Back of gold plated ipod touch

iBling for the masses

The Usain Bolt Limited Edition Signature Gold iPod Touch 8GB is "embellished" in 24ct gold, laser-engraved with his signature and pulling of the bow pose.

At £359.99 (inc. VAT) this is iBling that even the Man in the Street can afford.

There is a lifetime warranty against scratching or fading, which, considering the average life of an iPod Touch, might not be very meaningful.

The Hatton Garden gold-plating firm Goldgenie - motto: 'Redefining Luxury' - is pumping out 500 units, so be sure to get in early!

Our more upwardly mobile readers may care to consider, instead, the iPhone 3GS Supreme Rose from the Liverpudlian maker of " exclusive elite gadgets" Stuart Hughes, to be had for £1.93m.

To be fair, you get a lot of diamonds and pink gold for your money and a guarantee that only 10 units will be made. Bargain.
