The move made its way into commercials.
Celebrities from all over the world were doing it.
Even children were giving it a try.
"It's just a pose that I came up with. It's like Michael Jordan has one, (and) I have one now," Bolt told SNTV.
Its origin is surprisingly simple.
The gesture comes from a Jamaican dancehall move that was popular in 2008. Dancehall is a popular music style in Jamaica.
Bolt has said that he's planning to hang up his running shoes for good soon.
But his legacy, including his famous victory pose, won't soon be forgotten.
