Usain Bolt's mother looks less than impressed with Olympic performance

Usain Bolt has had yet another memorable summer, winning two golds and winning them both with great ease.

He first stormed to gold in the 100m final, before then smashing the field in the 200m, winning his seventh and eighth gold medal respectively.

Another Olympics and another one dominated by the Jamaican sprinter. You'd think his team, family, and friends would all be impressed and happy with the sprinter's performance, but one of his family members was seen looking less than impressed.

After strolling to 200m success, Bolt was overjoyed and clearly delighted with his run, but his Mum, on the other hand, was seemingly not as impressed or as enthused about the competition.

The camera cut to Bolt's Mum in the crowd, and despite seeing her son win yet another gold medal, she couldn't even force a smile and looked rather uninterested in the whole situation.

Maybe she's just getting used to seeing her son win an Olympic gold medal, but she was clearly not feeling it in Rio.

You can see the video below.

Some people have suggested it's because Bolt didn't complete the race in a world record, but it was still a comfortable run for the Jamaican, who is now expected to retire from Olympic action.

Bolt just has the Men's relay to go at Rio, and then after that, he is expected to call time on his Olympics career, ending it in style and with potentially nine gold medals.

The Men's relay takes place on Saturday morning and Bolt will hope he and his Jamaican teammates can end the Olympics on a high note.
