Move over, '90s Chicago Bulls. Usain Bolt claimed his own Three-Peat in Rio last night.
The 29-year-old recovered from a typically awkward start to take gold in the Men's 100 metres - his third in the same event since his Olympic debut in Beijing.
He was made to fight for it, too, as house villain Justin Gatlin stole a big lead in the first 50 metres. But in the end, it was Bolt who claimed gold, and immortality, in a pulsating contest.

Bolt told the BBC:
It wasn't perfect today but I got it done and I'm pretty proud of what I've achieved - nobody else has done it or even attempted it.
I expected to go faster, but I'm happy that I won. I did what I had to.
Somebody said I can become immortal. Two more medals to go and I can sign off. Immortal.
