Champagne makers Mumm invited sprint legend Usain Bolt to experience micro-gravity to showcase a new bottle, designed for future space tourism.

The Jamaican boarded a special Airbus Zero G plane, which simulates what it's like to be in zero gravity and challenged two of his fellow passengers to a foot race.

The challengers were French astronaut Jean-Francois Clervoy (in the blue flight suit) and CEO of Novespace and French Interior designer Octave de Gaulle (in the black). 

See video below, which Bolt shared on his Twitter page.
