-- Even the most powerful man on Earth geeks out from time to time when meeting a celebrity.
“Nobody’s ever been faster than this guy! Ever! Of all the billions of people,” Obama said excitedly before smiling for a photo with Bolt.
The two men then struck the sprinter’s signature pose after the president suggested they do so.
"After we have a chance for our town hall, I get a chance to say hi to Usain Bolt and Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce," the president said to applause. "When you have the fastest people on the planet, you’ve got to say hi to them, right? Because that’s fast. There are a lot of people out there, and they’re the fastest."
