Usain Bolt started making waves in the world of sprinting since 2004, but the world first took notice of the towering Jamaican when he sprinted his way to a treble gold at the Beijing Olympics 2008, since then there has been no looking back for this ‘once in a generation’ athlete. He then went on to bag umpteen awards at various awards functions, global ones I mean.

The latest award he is guilty of is pocketing the ‘Sportsman of the Year’ trophy for the record-equalling fourth time while ace gymnast Simone Biles clinched the top honour in the women’s category at the Laureus World Awards, for the very first time.

Bolt, who bagged this award in 2009, 2010 and 2013, walked away with the ‘Oscar of Sports’ for the fourth time alongside legends like Roger Federer, Serena Williams and star surfer Kelly Slater as four-time Laureus award winner. What a sportsman to witness, surreal for sure.

But the event that is our prime focus is when Usain Bolt recieved the award from another living legend Michael Johnson. Michael asked Usain not to break other peoples record at a pace in which he does, in a cheeky manner. Usain Bolt the cheeky quotient to another high with his reply, he said, “I am sorry to have broken your record”. Witty, right?
