In the remarkable photos, the 29-year-old is running hell for leather in the 200m semi-finals. After a typically strong final third from the big man, Bolt eases off to conserve some energy for the final.
However, Canada's Andre de Grasse (who won bronze in the men's 100m), is still chasing Bolt down.
Alarmed by the pace of the Canadian, Bolt turns to his rival and says: "What are you doing, it is the semis?"
According to the the seven-time gold medal winner, de Grasse's response was something along the lines of "I had to push you".
Bolt still managed to win the event comfortably and qualify for the 200m final, keeping his "treble-treble" dream alive. The Jamaican will now need to secure a win in that event and the 4 x 100m relay in order to go down in history as the greatest sprinter of all time.
