BEIJING — Usain Bolt was celebrating his historic fourth 200-meter victory in a row when a photographer, who was riding on a Segway, lost his balance and crashed into the greatest sprinter on Earth.
The incident happened at the world championships in Beijing. Although Bolt immediately grabbed his Achilles, he appeared fine after the collision.
“The rumor I’m trying to start right now is that Justin Gatlin paid him off,” he said, jokingly blaming his competition.
““I want my money back. He didn’t complete the job,” Gatlin said, playing along with the joke.
