The 2016 Rio Summer Olympic Games are well underway with medals being won left, right and centre. However, one of the main attractions of the Olympics - the 100m final - doesn't take place until August 15.

In the meantime, favourite to win the race and the current fastest man in the world Usain Bolt, will have to find other ways to occupy his time until Saturday when the men's preliminary races for the event begin.

Lightning Bolt has likely been doing the usual stuff to occupy the time such as training, press conferences, sightseeing, and taking in the Brazilian culture. He certainly did the last one in abundance after his press conference as you can see in the tweet below.

The sprinter - who currently holds the world record of covering the 100m in 9.58 seconds - samba danced his way out of the press conference alongside several ladies dressed in traditional samba clothing with people playing drums in the background. As you can tell by his face, he was very happy to be there.

However, Bolt will now be focusing on his training and preparation to defend his three Olympic gold medals in the 100m, 200m, and the 4×100 metres relay.

If he wins, surely we will see him use his new dancing skills and samba his way around the Olympic Stadium during his lap of honour?
