Usain Bolt has admitted he hopes his remarkable Olympic career will put him down in history as one of the greatest athletes to have ever lived.

Speaking in the early hours of Friday morning after completing victory in the men’s 200 meters at Olympic Stadium, Bolt said he was honored to be mentioned in the same breath as sporting icons Muhammad Ali and Pele, and Olympic swimming superstar Michael Phelps.

“I’m waiting until after the Olympics to see if (people) will put me in that bracket, if the fans will put me in that bracket,” Bolt said. “I am ready and I am waiting to see what (the media) write tomorrow and after that.”
