The cameraman who crashed into Usain Bolt while riding a Segway at the World Track and Field Championships on Thursday presented Bolt with a red bracelet after Bolt’s 200m medal ceremony on Friday in Beijing.

Here’s video of the collision, which sent Bolt tumbling to the track.

Song Tao, of China’s CCTV, apologized to Bolt, according to reports. They shook hands, and Bolt patted Song on the back on Friday.

“The important thing is that he is OK,” Song said via a translator, according to the Guardian. “I’m fine and ready to get back to work.”

In 2013, Bolt also received a gift from a media member at the World Championships. Photographer Olivier Morin presented Bolt with a large, framed picture of his famous photo of Bolt winning while a lightning bolt struck in the background.

NBC and NBC Sports Live Extra will have World Championships coverage Saturday (2:30 p.m. ET) and Sunday (2 p.m.). Bolt is expected to return for his final event, the 4x100m relay, on Saturday.
