IN THE MIDDLE of the night Irish time, Usain Bolt blew the field away to win the 100m gold medal at the Olympics in Rio.

Earlier in the night, Getty photographer Cameron Spencer captured Bolt mid-race in his semi final appearing to turn and smile for the camera.

Immediately, the photo has achieved iconic status

And within hours was, of course, a meme

His face just makes it ripe for comedy

It’s applicable to everyone’s life

It’s the opening of a childhood-themed flashback movie

Glorious stuff.
