Usain Bolt is getting a lot of national attention not just for his incredible running skills, but because of his respect for the Star-Spangled Banner.
While American Sanya Richards-Ross was accepting the gold medal for winning the 400-meter dash, Bolt was giving an interview.
The world's fastest man, a Jamaican who won the 100-meter dash, stopped what he was doing to listen to the Star-Spangled Banner.
Instead of continuing to talk to the interviewer, he turned around, pointed at the flag, and indicated to the reporter that he would like to watch in silence.
Video of Bolt's interview has gone viral.
