Usain Bolt & Cameraman Kiss and Make up

Updated: 28 August 2015 19:12 IST

Song Tao almost became Jamaica's number one villain after he knocked off Usain Bolt in Beijing post a gold in 200 meters at the World Championships. But a day later, his apology was accepted with a smile by the world's fastest man.

Photographers are always trying to capture the best moments for the rest of the world to watch. But on Friday, a photographer at the World Championships in Beijing found himself on the other side of the viewfinder igniting media frenzy. Song Tao is the same lens man who knocked out Usain Bolt on Thursday after he beat Justin Gatlin to win the 200m gold.

But damage control soon followed, as he presented the world's fastest man with a good luck bracelet after Friday's medal ceremony. Bolt was caught totally off-guard when he was taken down on Thursday. He said, "Accidents happen. He was focusing more on me than actually riding the Segway, so it's just one of those things."

Twitter went berserk after the incident. Some blamed the cameraperson, while the others played on like Bolt and treated the incident like a joke.

Post the incident both the gentlemen are eager to get back to work. While Bolt hopes to win the 4x100m relay gold for Jamaica, Song Tao is looking forward to hop on to his segway and start shooting again.
