IT’S AN IMAGE that has been circling  the world on the Internet since  Jamaican sprinting phenomenon, USAIN BOLT  crossed the finishing line to win Olympic gold in the 100 meters and go down  in history as one of the greatest athletes of all time:

The Washington Post wrote: “ You  didn’t even have to watch the race to know what happened. As he easily strode past his competition, Bolt glanced over his shoulder at the other runners and flashed his magnetic smile, once again showing why he’s equally lovable to his fans and soul crushing to his opponents.

“The image, snapped by Australian photographer Cameron Spencer for Getty, pretty much sums up Bolt’s dominance and will probably go down as the most memorable of the Rio Olympics.

“It is far from the first time that Bolt has grinned on the track as he’s left his opponents in the dust, but never before has he made the Internet lose its mind like he did with the pictures from Sunday night. The meme-fest began shortly after the photos were released, and it didn’t stop there.
