Star Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt wrote his name in the history books, winning his third consecutive Olympic title in the men’s 100 metre event at the Rio Games.
The multiple Olympic champion powered to victory in 9.81 seconds on Sunday.
It was however, one of the tightest races that Bolt has run during his legendary career.
American star Justin Gatlin — Bolt’s biggest rival in the competition — was the leader until the closing stages before the Jamaican started to pull away, and had to settle for the silver with an impressive 9.84 seconds.
The world is celebrating the history-making final dash, the netizens hasn’t been able to resist the temptation of turning a meme-worthy image:
