Usain Bolt won his seventh Olympic gold in the Maracana last night and his antics set social media ablaze.
Not so much in the final, when he ran a hard 9.81 to overhaul Justin Gatlin’s fast start and win the 100m, but in the semi-final which preceded it.
Bolt cruised home in 9.86 seconds and looked to be enjoying himself – so much so that he cracked a smile as he crossed the line.
It did not go unnoticed…
Yup, that's me. You're probably wondering how I ended up in this situation. pic.twitter.com/TXU6T6iM3B
