A Segway-riding cameraman collided with world record holder Usain Bolt on the sidelines of the International Association of Athletics Federations Track and Field World Championships in Beijing on Thursday, Reuters reports.

Bolt, who was waving to fans after winning his fourth straight world title in the 200 meters, took a spill when the cameraman, following closely behind him, lost his balance. Both fell to the ground and Bolt was scratched, but sustained no serious injuries.

"I probably should have my legs insured. It was pretty scary when it happened," Bolt told reporters in a news conference after the race, according to Reuters. "Accidents happen."
