The Guardian reports that the cameraman, called Song Tao, who works for Chinese state broadcaster CCTV and has covered many sports events, caught up with Bolt before his medal ceremony in the Bird's Nest stadium in Beijing on Friday.

Song reportedly said: "The important thing is that he is OK. I'm fine and ready to get back to work."
