Athletics: Bolt receives 'amazing' AFP lightning photo
MOSCOW (AFP) - Jamaican track star Usain Bolt on Saturday received a framed AFP photograph of the sprinter clinching world 100m gold as a lightning bolt illuminated the stormy skies above.
AFP photographer Olivier Morin, who snapped the photo as Bolt reclaimed his 100m title at the World Athletics Championships in Moscow last weekend, handed over the image after Bolt had secured his third successive world 200m title.
Bolt shook hands with Morin and posed for photos with the framed image on the dais before the official press conference for the podium finishers in the 200m, victory in which gave the Jamaican seven world gold medals.
"It's a wonderful birthday present," said Morin, who will be 48 on Augu 31.
