The problem with being the fastest man in the world is that sometimes it takes time to slow down … like when Usain Bolt recently crashed into a flowergirl at end of 100m sprint.


Bolt had just won the race at the Diamond League in Oslo with a time of 9.79 seconds when he found himself hurtling towards a flowergirl - there to give the gift to winners.

Despite still moving at some speed, the Jamaican did his best not to knock the blonde girl to the floor, somehow holding her up as he continued to move.

The 11-year-old pupil has skipped a day of school to see Obama visit Honeywell factory in Minnesota and managed to get a seat in the front row.

After hearing Obama's speech, Sullivan even got to shake the hand of the president, who asked him about skipping class to be there.

But rather than tell the lad off for missing school, Obama used his official presidential notepad to write a signed note to the teacher saying: "Mr Ackerman -- Please excuse Tyler... He was with me! Barack Obama."
