(CNN) - Usain Bolt, the Jamaican sprint king, held a news conference on Tuesday, and yes he showed off his trademark lightning bolt pose.

As he did confetti and streamers fell from the ceiling. 

The nine-time Olympic gold medalist will be retiring from the track world next week. He hasn't lost in a major individual event in a decade.

Bolt is considered one of the most dominant sprinters in world history. He also was one of the most colorful, combining an apt name for a fast frame, and an engaging personality.
