Usain Bolt reflects on his season and a successful defence of all three of his Olympic titles.
SOUNDBITE: (English) Usain Bolt:
"For me this Olympics was very important. It was my dream to set myself apart from many other athletes. A lot of athletes have won titles once and for me this Olympics was very important so I went out there and I did my country, myself, my fans and everybody who was looking for me to do great things, proud. I'm very happy with myself and I'm very pleased with my performance. I think I did pretty well. A lot of people are happy so I think I really do well. It was an extremely, I wouldn't say a bumpy ride but it wasn't a smooth season. But with God, for me I pushed through, I prayed a lot, I got a lot of prayers from all over the world. I got a lot of Facebook (messages) people keep telling me I'm praying for you, keep focussed, keep working hard, staying strong and all these things. So I got a lot of support from all over the world. I want to thank all of those people for their prayers because I'm sure it went a long way so thanks a lot also. So for me, everybody that has supported Usain Bolt, Dr, the Honourable (laughter), Usain St Leo. The legend. Just all of the supporting and I have one thing to say. Never doubt a champion."
