WATCH: Usain Bolt Run Over by Cameraman on Segway

You read that one right.

Usain Bolt, the fastest man in the world, was taken out by a cameraman riding a Segway while jogging around his victory lap after winning the 200m at the World Championships on Thursday night. A cameraman was filming Bolt interacting with fans when it appears he lost control of his Segway, colliding with the sprinter. Check it out:

Bolt didn’t appear injured after the collision, jumping up with a smile. “I have a few cuts, but it’s nothing I haven’t done to myself in training,” Bolt told BBC radio. “I wasn’t looking. I was waving to the crowd, and I just felt something take me out.”

The Jamaican standout said that he would be fine for the 4X100 relay on Saturday. Bolt added that the cameraman apologized, joking that silver medalist Justin Gatlin paid him off to move up in the finish.

Gatlin was quick to respond, saying, “I want my money back. He didn’t complete the job.”

That accident could have been career ending. If Bolt doesn’t have insurance and a good lawyer now is the time to get them. The media involved in that stupid accident should be sued!
