Bolt camera
Bolt's signature on the camera, courtsey of eBay
 
The Nikon D4 that Usain Bolt took from an Olympic sports photographer has been sold on eBay.

The camera sold for $7,300 with 22 bids.

The camera was taken by Bolt after he won his second gold medal in the 200m sprint. Bolt took several shots with the camera including, some of Jamaican runner Yohan Blake and the press pit.

The camera has been sold on eBay by the Swedish photographer who the camera belonged to, Jimmy Wixtröm, in aid of the Swedish Cancer Society.

While Bolt borrowed the camera, he also carved his name into the top with a screwdriver, before returning the camera to Jimmy.

The auction included the Nikon D4 camera and a framed photo of Bolt using the camera.

    Immediately after a 100m sprint where would Bolt get a screwdriver from?
    I doubt he would carry one with him during the race with the intent to vandalise a press photographers camera straight after.

    I smell a scam.
