Usain Bolt was flattened by a cameraman on a Segway after his 200m win

“He tried to kill me!” Bolt joked.

USAIN BOLT JOGGED away from a freak collision with a cameraman moments after he retained his 200m world title.

Bolt ran a magnificent 19.55 to beat Justin Gatlin and complete another brilliant sprint double in Beijing.

But his celebrations were momentarily cut short when a cameraman lost control of his Segway and took the legs from under the world’s fastest man.

Here’s another angle of the bizarre moment:

Bolt appeared to be none the worse for wear as he dusted himself off and continued to celebrate with fans and pose for pictures at the Bird’s Nest.

“He tried to kill me!” he joked when speaking to the BBC.

“Maybe he was like, ‘He wins too much. Let’s take him out.’”

Bolt obliterates Gatlin and the rest of the field to pick up fourth straight 200m world title
