Usain Bolt won the men’s 100 meters at the Olympics Sunday night, his third straight Olympic win in that event and seventh career gold medal. But it was a moment from Bolt’s semifinal run in the 100 that captured the internet’s attention, as the Jamaican sprinter once again added a bit of showmanship to his run.

In a perfect photo captured by Cameron Spencer of Getty Images, Bolt flashes a cheeky smile as he blazes to another win with ease.

Naturally, the internet took the photo and ran with it, turning Bolt into the greatest Olympics meme since Angry Michael Phelps.

Simply put, Usain Bolt is amazing.
