Watch: President Obama and Usain Bolt meet up in Jamaica

"Nobody's ever been faster than this guy. Ever! Of all the billions of people."

President Obama, on his first presidential trip to Jamaica, had the chance this week to meet national hero and fastest-man-ever Usain Bolt.

In the video, Bolt and Obama exchange greetings and a handshake. The president then asked, and the pair struck Bolt's trademark "lightning bolt" celebration pose together.

"Nobody's ever been faster than this guy," Obama remarked. "Ever! Of all the billions of people."

Very astute, Mr. President.
