Watch Usain Bolt during U.S. National Anthem

The following video is going viral at the Black Sphere. It is a clipof Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt being interviewed after an event. It is unclear where or when this video was shot, but notice Bolt’s remarkable reaction when he hears the American National Anthem being played.

At a time when cretins like ESPN’s Kevin Blackistone is raising objections to “the singing of a war anthem to open every game,” it is doubly noteworthy that a man not born in this country shows the degree of respect that Bolt does.
