Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt will retire after competing at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics.

“I think it will be a good time to retire, on top and just been dominating for so long,” he said in Brussels on Wednesday, according to the Associated Press. “If I want to be among the greats of (Muhammad) Ali and Pele and all these guys I have to continue dominating until I retire.”

Bolt, 27, has six Olympic gold medals — three from Beijing and three from London. He recently won three gold medals at the 2013 world championships in Moscow.
