Usain Bolt Tripped By Cameraman On Segway After 200m Win

Usain Bolt, the fastest man in the world, has been toppled by a Segway.

Bolt was running his victory lap after winning the gold in the 200m at the World Championships in Beijing with a time of 19.55, the fastest since his Olympic win in 2012. It was then that a cameraman on a Segway ran into the champion, bringing him to the ground:

"He tried to kill me, I don't know what was going on," Bolt said to the Telegraph after the incident.

The runner, who appeared to be uninjured, got up quickly after the fall.
