    Usain Bolt of Jamaica celebrates after winning the men's 4 x 100m relay final on day 14 of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games at the Olympic Stadium on Aug. 19, 2016, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

    After devouring the competition in the final leg of the 4x100m relay final Friday night in Rio, Usain Bolt decided to devour some food.

    His meal of choice: Chicken McNuggets.

    An AP reporter snapped a pic of the fastest man in the world chowing down on some nuggets post-gold medal race.

    It shouldn’t be a surprise that Bolt would choose Ronald’s chunks of chicken to celebrate his ninth gold medal. Bolt, you see, is no nugget newbie.

    In his memoir, Bolt described how he wasn’t a big fan of Chinese food at the Beijing Olympics, so he sought out McDonald’s, which just happened to have an endless supply of his favorite food.

    And it’s a good thing the restaurant was well-stocked. Bolt estimated that he ate about 1,000 nuggets while in Beijing, which worked out to about 100 nuggets per day.

    “At first I ate a box of 20 for lunch, then another for dinner,” he said in his memoir, “Faster Than Lightning.” 

    "The next day I had two boxes for breakfast, one for lunch and then another couple in the evening,” he continued. "I even grabbed some fries and an apple pie to go with it."
