Michael Johnson: 'Amazing' seeing Usain Bolt break my record

Michael Johnson says it was "amazing" seeing Usain Bolt take his 200m world record at the Beijing Olympics.

But he told Kirsty Young on Desert Island Discs he "did not feel any different the next day."

The sprinter, who is now a BBC commentator, still holds the world records for 400m and the 4 x 400m relay.

Michael Johnson's interview with Kirsty Young on Desert Island Discs will be broadcast on Sunday 16 October at 1115 BST on BBC Radio 4, and repeated at 0900 BST on Friday 21 October.
