But, there was more drama in store at the end of the race. While the barefoot Bolt was on his celebratory walk, he was downed by a cameraman on a Segway electric scooter who had strayed too close to the sprinter.

The cameraman mounted a fixed railing and slipped backwards, shooting the Segway from under him into Bolt's heels and making the newly-minted champion fall backwards.

Despite the fall, Bolt could see the funny side of the incident and gave a beaming smile. Bolt made light of the incident and joked about it saying that 'they tried to kill me'!

Here’s the video of incident:
