Rio 2016: Showman sprinter Blake serves up Thriller


Usain Bolt showed off some samba moves in Rio this week and sprint rival Yohan Blake has been strutting to Michael Jackson as he prepares for another Olympic medal assault.

Sprint king Bolt's media conference on Tuesday turned into a party when he got into the carnival spirit with some slick moves alongside dancers on stage.

Blake, who won silver in the 100 metres and 200m behind Bolt at the 2012 London Games, also partook in some alternative training ahead of the start of the track and field events schedule on Friday as he glided around and belted out Jackson's classic track 'Thriller'.
