One social media user said: ‘Just like the Roadrunner taunting Wile E. Coyote’.  

Clevis Murray, from Boston, joked: ‘Everyone’s trying to become famous while Bolt is posing for pics.’

Another user mused about the achievement: ‘When you’re on another level & know you’re the fastest man on the planet.’

Journalist John Haltiwanger, from New York, said: ‘This man is so fast he has enough time to stop and cheese for the camera before crossing the finish line.’

The Jamaican sprint legend emerged victorious in his grudge match against American Justin Gatlin, running the track in 9.81 seconds.

Gatlin, who finished in 9.89 seconds, took home the silver medal while Andre De Grasse of Canada nabbed the bronze. 

Sports writer Jesse Washington wrote on social media: ‘When you’ve tricked the world into thinking Justin Gatlin has a chance’.

Michael Grady added: ‘I’m dying. If ever one photo could demonstrate how unfair Bolt is…’

Writer Vann R. Newkirk II said: ‘Homie is fighting for his life and Bolt is posing for photos mid-race’.

Erin Burr joked about Bolt’s mother hoping her son would get married: ‘when your mom keeps bugging you about grandkids and you’re like what was that mom I couldn’t hear over the crowd’. 

Andrew Osagie, from London, said: ‘When a man has enough chill time to pick out a new outfit between rounds you know he’s going to win’. 

One Twitter user said: ‘When you’re in the middle of a 100m sprint and remember you need a new profile pic for Facebook.’  

Bolt is now just two races away from completing the ‘triple triple’ and winning three consecutive Olympic gold medals in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay.

It would be the perfect final Olympics for the legend, who has repeatedly said he will retire after Rio.

‘Somebody said I can become immortal,’ Bolt said after the race on Sunday. ‘Two more medals to go and I can sign off. Immortal.’
