Usain Bolt destroys James Corden in 'Drop the Mic' challenge

We all know that Usain Bolt is the fastest human in the world, but did you know he’s also pretty good at rapping?

Bolt proved that he’s not only quick on his feet but very quick in his head as he challenged James Corden to the ‘Drop the Mic’ challenge on his Late Late Show.

If you haven’t watched a ‘Drop the Mic’ challenge before, it’s basically TV host Corden taking on a celebrity in a rap battle.

Usually, Corden comes out on top as his think-thinking is usually too much for many celebrities. But this is Bolt we’re talking about and he simply doesn’t do losing.

In fact, he’s used to winning in style and we think he did so once again during this skit.

During the battle - which must have been one of the best ‘Drop the Mic’s’ Corden has ever done - the pair traded insults for the best part of seven minutes.

Take a look at the brilliant exchange below:

Corden certainly gave as good as he got, but you can’t argue that Bolt nailed him.

The sprinter even brought out his nine gold medals and handed them over to Corden - there’s simply no reply to that.

But the line that surely won it for him was this: “Can’t believe you entered this battle to be a winner, you only outrun me if someone yells dinner.”


The audience in the studio clearly agreed with us that Bolt won by giving him the biggest cheer and therefore giving him the crown of ‘Drop the Mic’ winner.

It may not be a victory to rival his nine gold medals, but his performance was impressive nevertheless.
