After capturing his third consecutive Olympic gold medal in the 200-meter race in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday night, Usain Bolt paid tribute to a fellow champion.

The Jamaican blew away the rest of the field with a time of 19.78 seconds, which he told NBC was disappointing.

Being the king of the the track, he celebrated like a King...James, emulating Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James' signature move, The Silencer.
