Dubbed as the World's Fastest Man and the World's Funniest Man, Jamaican athletic icon Usain Bolt and American comedian Kevin Hart were seen in The Bahamas today on Cabbage Beach, Paradise Island.

Announced in June, 2017, both are taking part in the PokerStars #GameOn Challenge, an online social media battle.

"#GameOn sees the superstars face-off in a battle of wits using the metrics of their social media channels as scorecards, allowing fans to decide who wins each battle. Their rivalry will culminate in a live face-to-face battle at the poker table in January 2018 during PokerStars Championship Bahamas. #GameOn will embrace the core qualities and skills of poker with challenges to include reading people, bluffing and risk management."

The race on Cabbage Beach (see video) was taken on Friday, January 5.
