Jamaican sprinter, Usain Bolt, displayed what the Olympic Games is all about when he stopped a live interview in order to pay respect to his fellow athlete as the U.S. national anthem began playing.

Bolt was in the middle of a live interview with a Spanish television network when the medal ceremony for U.S. sprinter Sanya Richards-Ross began.

Bolt promptly stopped the interview and turned towards the flags as a sign of respect.  Once the anthem was done playing, he continued his interview.

This is especially remarkable because if you pay attention to how the Mainstream Media describes Bolt you would think he is just your typical cocky, arrogant athlete (you know all the favorite adjectives that the MSM likes to apply to black athletes).  But with this one gesture, Bolt proved that not only is he the fastest man alive, but he’s also one of the classiest.
