Dutch Olympic athletes are already flooded with medals, but will soon also be flooded with champagne. Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt promised a bottle of champagne to every athlete who imitates his famous pose, and several Dutch athletes are accepting the challenge.

So far Sven Kramer, Kjeld Nuis and Ireen Wüst all struck the Bolt pose.

It is not clear whether the fastest man in the world will deliver the champagne himself, but he is clearly aware of the Dutch rising to his challenge. "Congrats for your gold medals! You are speed legends on ice!", he tweeted at TeamNL, naming all three skaters in the tweet. "You definitely deserve a bottle of champagne to celebrate!!"
