this is bound to be one of the pictures of the year. no doubt in December when there's the annual reviews of the year, this will be near the top of the pile. Captures the raw emotion, somewhat disbelief and euphoria that no doubt thousands felt in the stadium and millions felt around the world

That will be an eternal picture and I can even see a lot more being made out of it to be honest.  It has gone global and viral!

The amazing thing is that moment was where Messi went mental on top of the advertising hoardings going absolutely mental punching his chest and screaming.  He actually burst into tears right after that.  But the incredible part is that amongst that multitude of Barça fans there was a professional photographer hiding so as to capture the moment.

There are so many of these pictures with Bolt looking back and it always amazes me how he makes it look so effortless.

For me it's more his smiling face while the others look like they're about to die. xD

The photo is great because it throws the sensation of speed.
