An Olympic spectator was filmed glancing around suspiciously before throwing a bottle at the starting line of the men’s 100m final.
The man was filmed by another spectator who was using their mobile phone to capture the sprinters as they crouched down to race.
The person filming happened to be standing just a few metres behind the bottle thrower near the front of the stand on Monday morning.
The mobile footage shows a man wearing dark sunglasses walking to get a better vantage point and quickly glancing behind him before appearing to hurl a bottle toward the sprinters.
The bottle hit the track seconds before the sprinters took off and Usain Bolt charged to claim the gold medal.
The alleged bottle thrower Ashley Gill-Webb was hit in the back by Dutch world judo champion Edith Bosch, who happened to be sitting behind him, before he was tackled by security.
The 34-year-old pleaded not guilty to creating a public nuisance in court last night and his trial has been set for early September.
He has also been banned from any Olympic venues during the Games.
