The world's fastest man, Usain Bolt, competed in the men's 100-metre semifinal today just 30 minutes before winning gold in the final, and breezed past the competition with absolute ease. So much so, he took time to turn his head and give his competitors a cheeky smile.

Now people are using Bolt's semifinal finish as the perfect source for memes.
