Chow down on those chicken nuggets, Usain Bolt, they're well earned.
Care for a little BBQ dipping sauce to go with them?
Moments after earning his ninth Olympic gold medal Friday as part of the Jamaican 4x100 relay, the fastest man on the planet sat near the track and plowed through a box of those battered and fried funky-shaped gems from McDonald's.

Bolt devoured them as workers gathered around for his autograph. But it's hard to sign when you're eating nuggets.
Like his status on the track, Bolt's fondness for chicken nuggets is legendary. At the 2008 Beijing Games, Bolt supposedly ate them by the handful.
Bolt worked up an appetite Friday by closing out his Olympic career with his ninth straight gold medal. He's not planning to be back for the 2020 Tokyo Games.
What's he going to do next? "Vacation," he responded.
