James Corden Raced Usain Bolt, And You’ll Never Guess How That Turned Out


A foot race between the fastest man alive and a TV host — what could go wrong?

James Corden, the host of CBS’ “The Late Late Show,” invited Olympic gold medalist and world’s fastest man Usain Bolt to his show Tuesday as both a guest, and a competitor. Corden challenged Bolt, guest Owen Wilson and the rest of his show’s staff to a 100-meter sprint, and the results weren’t surprising.

Despite the embarrassing outcome, Corden thinks he just might have had an off day, saying “That’s the life of a professional track athlete, some days it comes, and some days it doesn’t.”

Never afraid to boast, Corden took to Twitter before the show, proclaiming himself as the winner:

As far as Bolt’s analysis of the race, its tough to argue with him.

“No. 1, all day,” Bolt said. “Every day, No. 1, I’m a winner.”
