|Barack Obama and Usain Bolt perform the sprinter's trademark lightning pose when the pair meet up on a presidential visit to Jamaica|
He then told the six-time Olympic champion: "Wait, wait, should we get a pose here? Come on, man, show me."
The pair then leant back into the sprinter's signature pose for the cameras. Bolt posted a video of their meeting on Instagram and added the comment: "What can I say.. It was truly a great honour meeting the President of United States of America."
Obama is the first US president to visit Jamaica in more than 30 years – after President Ronald Reagan in 1982.
He is there on a three-day trip, which will also take in Panama, to meet representatives of the 15 countries in the Caribbean Community group to discuss energy and security issues.
And Obama earlier made crowds laugh out loud when he opened a speech with "wha gawan" – Jamaican patois which means "What's going on?"
