Dorset Village Celebrates Bolt's Win

Usain Bolt has urged the world to bask in his glory after becoming the first man to win the Olympic sprint double twice in succession on an historic night in London.

While breaking a world record proved beyond even him last night (Thursday 9th August) Bolt did achieve the legendary status he had craved by retaining his 200m title in 19.32 seconds, leading a Jamaican clean sweep ahead of 100m silver medallist Yohan Blake and Warren Weir, both of whom are just 22. 

Bere Regis is one village celebrating his success. They've created a Bolt figure, which they've tied to a post.

"I'm now a living legend. Bask in my glory,"  Bolt said at the medallists' press conference. 

"Now I am going to sit back, relax and think about what's next. 

"I don't know what I really want to do after this, whether to run the 100 or 200 or try something else. I need to find a (new) goal that's going to motivate me to great things.

"But I am not ready to retire. I love this sport. The rest of the season I am just going to have fun because I did what I came here to do."
