Jamaican track star Usain Bolt has a lot to celebrate after winning big at the London Olympics, and he did just that over the weekend with an bottle of Champagne valued at nearly $125,568, or £80,000.

The Drinks Business writes that after breaking the world record for the 4 by 100-meter relay, Bolt enjoyed a 15 liter Nebuchadnezzar of Armand de Brignac Champagne, known as Ace of Spades, which had been brought to his VIP table at the London nightclub Movida. By the way, the bottle's size is the the equivalent of 20 bottles.

The Associated Press writes that Bolt left the club with his teammate Yohan Blake around 6 a.m.

Meanwhile across town at the Chinawhite nightclub, American swimmer Ryan Lochte and South African swimmer Chad le Clos enjoyed a nearly $3,158 (£2,012) cocktail, which contained Hennessy Paradis Imperial Cognac, Luxor 24-carat gold leaf Champagne and a pair of handmade 18-carat gold rings lying at the bottom of the glass.

In a previous press release, Armand de Brignac Champagne's producer describes the drink:

Armand de Brignac, the world's number one rated Champagne, is a prestige cuvee handcrafted and produced using old-world techniques by a staff of just eight people in a single-family owned vineyard and house established in 1763 in Chigny-les-Roses, France.

The company also reveals that the libation was also chosen by both the NBA's Dallas Mavericks and the NHL's Boston Bruins to celebrate their Championship wins.
