Usain Bolt Narrowly Avoided Ultimate Disaster At Oaks Day!

The fastest man on the planet, Usain Bolt, only just missed being kicked by a horse in the mounting yards at Flemington on Oaks Day.

Bolt had been walking by the horses when a stray hoof from New Zealand champion Eleonora angrily lashed out in his direction.

The Olympian was too quick for the horse and managed to jump out of reach of the kick and whip of the horse’s tail.

Bolt managed to land in the arms of Olympic silver medallist John Steffensen as he managed to jump back to avoid contact with the horse.

Bolt, who was dressed in an amazing white suit giggled in the arms of Steffensen before turning away from the track.

The duo were talking to a jockey who was also quick enough to escape the horse’s hoof. The near miss didn't cause too much stress on Bolt who quickly flashed the 'okay' sign at photographers. 

The star athlete was snapped throughout the day watching the races with a glass of what appeared to be white wine.

The champion delivered the Oaks Day trophy tot he stewards area as part of his official duties while pretending to sprint with it lodged firmly in his hands.
