Man down! Man down!

Actually it’s two mans down. OK, OK, we’re just trying to be funny ’cause we know it’s 2 men down.

Anyway, before we distract ourselves even further, we’re going all around the bushes to tell you about a little incident that saw the world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, unprepared to take on a Segway mostly because he didn’t see it coming.

Actually Bolt was literally mowed down by a Segway being ridden by a cameraman following the athlete after he had just finished winning his fourth 200-meter title in Beijing, China. The cameraman was into filming Bolt that he forgot to properly guide the Segway and then it happened.

Fortunately it wasn’t as bad as it looks. Bolt is alright and so is the cameraman, we guess.

“It took me out pretty well,” Bolt said later in an interview. “But I’m OK. No issues, so I’m happy about it.”

In case you hadn’t heard, Bolt defeated staunch rival Justin Gatlin in the 200-meter race.

“There was no doubt. I told you guys that I would do it. ”

Take an extended look and get Bolt’s reaction to what happened to him:
