“James Corden challenges the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt, to a rap battle, and nothing is off the table,” reads the video’s description. The YouTube version of the clip has been seen more than a million times since its release late Wednesday.

The television show host and athlete went back and forth exchanging friendly insults in front of the audience. At the end of the exchange, the show’s audience determined the winner to be Bolt, who is expected to race for the final time at the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London.

During the battle, Bolt unzips his jacket revealing the three Olympic gold medals that he won at the Rio Games in August. Both trade words to the sound of a beat in the background.

The video is seven minutes in length and is worth a watch. Corden succeeded previous host Craig Ferguson as the late night host and the show is often highlighted by a segment called “Carpool Karaoke.”
