The world’s fastest man eased to another world title Thursday in Beijing, then ran into trouble on his victory lap.
Usain Bolt’s record win in the 200 meters at the World Athletics Championships was slightly marred when a TV cameraman aboard a Segway took out the Jamaican sprinter.
Bolt tumbled to the ground, flipped over to get back on his feet and then briefly held his left leg. He then walked back to the cameraman to make sure he was OK, too. The 10-times world champion did not appear badly injured by the incident, managed to see the funny side and was soon posing for pictures with his adoring crowd again.
As for the race, Bolt held off American Justin Gatlin again to claim a 10th world championship five days after nipping Gatlin at the line in the 100 meters.
Bolt added: “The rumour I’m trying to start right now is that Justin Gatlin paid him off.”
