Andre De Grasse And Usain Bolt Have A Bond, And It's Awesome

This. Is. Awesome.

So, you probably know something monumental went down Sunday night.

In the men's Olympic 100-metre sprint, reigning Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt from Jamaica made it a three-peat with a 9.81 time, USA's Justin Gatlin scored silver with 9.89 seconds, and Canada's Andre De Grasse ran a personal best to capture bronze at 9.91 seconds.

It was an incredible race - if you blinked twice you would've missed it, and also the obvious camaraderie between Bolt and De Grasse that made it all the more heartwarming.

Luckily, there are photos.
