Yohan Blake's face said it all as the second-fastest man of all time was upstaged by Australia's Rohan Browning in the 100m heats at the Olympics on Saturday night.

Browning shocked the athletics world by winning his heat with a personal best time of 10.01 seconds.

In doing so, he became the second-fastest Australian of all time and qualified fifth-fastest for the semi-finals.

Fans and commentators were left in disbelief by Browning's insane run, but no one appeared more shocked than Blake.

The Jamaican holds the second-fastest 100m time ever, only behind Usian Bolt's world record.

He won gold at the 2011 world championships and silver behind Bolt at the 2012 Olympics in London.

Blake fully expected to cruise through his heat as the fastest runner, but was left completely stunned by Aussie upstart Browning.

Blake could be seen looking to his left as Browning won the heat, before scrunching up his face in disbelief after the race.

“Yohan Blake has looked across and you know what he’s thought, ‘Who is that in lane one?" Tamsyn Manou noted in commentary for Channel 7. 

"I’ve been beaten by an Australian!’ Yes, you have Yohan Blake."

Blake's "priceless" reaction was also the talk of social media.

Rohan Browning out to shock the world at Olympics

The only Aussie sprinter to have gone faster than Browning is Patrick Johnson, who ran 9.93 back in 2003.

Vowing to go even faster, Browning is now gunning for "finals and beyond".

"There's more to pull out of myself. I can definitely be pushed a bit more," Browning said after booking his place in the semi-final.

"It's the one thing I've probably been lacking on the Australian circuit. I've been patient this year.

"I've just been training and racing in Australia and I've been dying for a bit of world-class competition.

"It feels good to take a few scalps early on. I've wanted to get him (Blake) for a long time. All the world's best guys are on my hit-list.

"When you're in lane one, you don't get a personalised introduction and I was definitely trying to harness a bit of that underdog spirit today.

"I doubt any of these guys would have any idea who I am."
