Last night, Usain Bolt took home his eighth gold medal after coming in first place at the 200-meter event.
Following the competition, Bolt made it clear that he had proven himself to be the best after beating Canada's Andre De Grasse by completing the race in less than 20 seconds.
"I've proven to the world I'm the greatest. This is what I came here for. That's what I'm doing. This is why I said this is my last Olympics — I can't prove anything else," Bolt said, according to a report by CBS on Friday. "What else can I do to prove to the world I am the greatest?" he added. "I am trying to be one of the greatest. Be among [Muhammad] Ali and Pelé. I hope to be in that bracket after these Games."
As for De Grasse's reaction, told the outlet, "Yesterday I felt so good, ran a personal best, and today I felt pretty good in my warm-up and I tried to execute the best way I know how and I just came up a little bit short. I was ready to try to challenge [Bolt] and he just ran away from me and I couldn't catch him. It is what it is."
In another report, via Inquirer Sports, Bolt's mother spoke out, revealing her desire for her superstar athlete so to settle down.
“I would hope he’ll settle down, get married and start his family,” Jennifer Bolt told Washington Post on Monday. “I know he’ll settle down because he has said it. He told me many times that he’s going to start his family."
