As Britain went on to win gold, Bolt lay on his back in his lane, his head in hands, being tended to by medics as one waited with a wheelchair to help push him off the track. It just happened (Usain's injury).

Two-time defending champion Jamaica, without their star sprinter Elaine Thompson, are through to the final of the women's 4x100-metre relay at the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London.

Typically, Bolt's only thoughts were with the team mates he felt he had let down.

"I can never imagine such an ending for Bolt".

Five years after winning the 100-meter hurdles at the London Games, Pearson won the world championship title in 12.59 seconds after missing much of the past two seasons because of injury.

"He kept apologising to us but we told him there was no need to apologise", Forte said. The U.S. was disqualified at Beijing 2015 for mishandling of the baton. "I worked hard for this day". I mean, the best men won today so credit to GB.

Yet while they promise they still have more to give, Philip insists the bumper home crowd made their job that little bit easier. "As a nation we are getting stronger", said Talbot.

Running the second leg, Allyson Felix and her teammates crossed first in a season's leading time of 41.84 seconds, beating Britain and Switzerland. Two more medals to go and I can sign off. Tactically I was trying to cover every move. "He is still the best in the world", Gatlin said. I'm sorry he got this injury.

Here was the moment Bolt's career came to an end.

While Farah handed out his long distance crown, the Ethiopians announced their coming.

World-record holder Kendra Harrison finished fourth. For Great Britain, it's their first gold medal in the 4×100-meters relay, with Jamaica winning the last four editions. The German beat Jakub Vadlejch of the Czech Republic by 16 centimeters. Ukraine's Yuliia Levchenko took silver in 2.01 and Poland's Kamila Licwinko was third in 1.99.

Bronze at the Olympics in Rio was a major success.

Their career successes dictated that they should both leave with gold medals hanging around their neck but there were a number of party-poopers on hand to steal a portion of the limelight. She challenged 2.08 three times but all failed.

Since that gold medal in 2007, the US men had only won one other medal in the event, a silver in 2013. Germany's Pamela Dutkiewicz finished third in 12.72.

Olympic champion Ruth Beitia tumbled out early in the high jump final at the world championships.

"He's coming back in a year or two, he'll be ready".
