Usain Bolt's camera he used after winning the gold medal for the 200 metres at the London 2012 Olympics has gone up for sale on eBay.

Bolt grabbed the camera from Jimmy Wixtrom, of Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, and snapped shots of compatriot Yohan Blake and members of the crowd before he carved his name on the camera and handed it back to Wixtrom.
