The cameraman who ran over Usain Bolt Thursday spoke for the first time following the incident.
In an interview with the Guardian, Song Tao, a cameraman for CCTV, said that he escaped without injury and is glad Bolt is in the same condition.
“The important thing is that he is OK,” Tao said through a translator. “I’m fine and ready to get back to work.”
After the race, Tao gave Bolt a good luck charm to wear on his wrist, and shook hands with the five-time IAAF World Athlete of the Year.
Bolt is scheduled to run in the 4x100m relay on Saturday with the Jamaican team. All eyes will be on his right wrist.
