Usain Bolt may be the fastest man in the world, but he also showed shortly after that he is an impeccably mannered man.

The winner of the men’s 100 metres was mobbed after his Sunday night victory for interviews by the waiting press corps.

The medal ceremony for the women’s 400 m took place during an answer session he was giving to a Spanish TV station, and the Jamaican sprinter halted the interview track side to stand and acknowledge the national anthem of the United States.
