But what exactly is this celebration? Where did it come from?

Well, Bolt refers to the move as To Di World (To The World). It is inspired by a dance move from Dancehall, an up-tempo musical style derived from reggae that is hugely popular in Jamaica.

And Bolt loves Dancehall.

"It is called 'To Di World' and I feel I am connecting to the people of the world when I do it," says Bolt.

"I started doing it for fun but people loved it so much they would be angry if I stopped."

We're not complaining, Mr Bolt. In fact, we're loving. So keep at it.

To Di World. Always!
