Usain Bolt has been showboating a lot of himself lately. He has already declared himself the greatest athlete of all time. Now the legendary sprinter is taking shots at other famous athletes.

As reported by NESN, the Jamaican sprinter was asked about Jesse Owens and Carl Lewis. After giving some praise to Lewis, Bolt quickly made some controversial statements about Lewis.

"Carl Lewis, I have no respect for him," Bolt told reporters. "The things he says about the track athletes are very downgrading. I think he's just looking for attention because nobody really talks about him.

"That was really sad for me when I heard the other day what he was saying. It was upsetting. I've lost all respect for him. All respect."

What do you think of Bolt's comments?
