Whew. It was a close call, but Usain Bolt is okay after a freak accident. A Chinese cameraman crashed into Bolt, literally knocking him off his feet. This was after Bolt’s victory in the 2oom final. Here is a sequence of the events.

The cameraman was filming him while riding on a Segway. Paying attention to Bolt, he did not notice the barrier to his left and the Segway hit the barrier and overturned knocking Bolt off his feet.

Take a look at the video:
