McDonald’s fans, rejoice! The fast food chain is dropping the price of a menu favourite to just 99p for today only.

In honour of the Men’s 100m Olympic final taking place today, Maccies is celebrating this year’s big race with a special deal on its Chicken McNuggets - and trust us, it’s worth sprinting to take advantage of this one.

Foodies can save a whopping £2.70 saving on the tasty 6-piece lunchtime treat - but you’ll have to get the My McDonald’s App to unlock the offer.

If you’re hoping to get your hands on the 99p snack, you can download the app for free here.

Sadly customers ordering in store, or via Deliveroo, Just Eat and UberEats won't be able to take advantage of the offer.

The deal comes after 100m world record holder, Usain Bolt, ate an estimated 1,000 McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets during the 2008 Bejing Olympics. That means he was munching on 100 Nuggets across breakfast, lunch and dinner over the 10 days he was in the Olympic Village.

Made with 100% chicken breast meat in a deliciously golden crispy coating, just waiting to be dipped, we're not surprised that Bolt couldn’t keep his hands off these little Nuggets of heaven.

If six aren’t enough, you can also grab a 9-piece box for £3.49, or, opt for the ultimate 20-piece share box for just £4.99.

McDonald’s breakfast is available from 5am-11am, and McDonald’s lunchtime menu is available from 11am daily.

Earlier this week, McDonald's treated us to even more news as the chain introduced five new items to its menu, including the mouth-watering BBQ Quarter Pounder with Cheese for £5.09.

Made with 100% British & Irish beef, two slices of melted cheese, fresh onions, pickles and the delicious combination of ketchup, mustard and BBQ sauce, it’s a must-try for all burger fans.

Sadly cheese lovers have had to wave goodbye to the Mozzarella Dippers once again, however it’s not all bad news as you can say hello to the tasty new Garlic Cheese Bites.

And for dessert, Maccies fans were delighted to hear that the Mars and Twix McFlurries are back in town - both available in Regular (£1.49) and Mini (99p) sizes for a limited-time only.

Want to save some pennies on your next McDonald’s takeaway? We've wangled a deal that gets you £5 off your next takeaway from Just Eat thanks to deals site TopCashback.

To get the offer, all you need to do is place an order over £10 through TopCashback and Just Eat, then TopCashback will refund 100% of the purchase order value up to £5 cashback on your order.

Orders costing more than £5 will still receive £5 cashback and it applies to any restaurant on Just Eat. How good is that?

Sadly, the cashback offer is only available for new members or those with no previous purchases or cashback through TopCashback.

The offer is running until 30th August 2021, so there's plenty of time to get saving
