Meanwhile, the top of the podium has continued to evade Team USA, which finished second to Great Britain on Saturday with a time of 37.52 seconds, just five-hundredths of a second behind the leaders.

"It was ridiculous. We were there waiting, and we were really trying to stay warm, but it was really ridiculous, we waited a really long time", McLeod said, via Jamaica-Gleaner.

"The race was 10 minutes late, we were kept 40 minutes and it was a 300 metre walk".

"It was cold. Usain said to me "I don't like this", because we keep on warming up, and sitting, and warming up".

"I think they were holding us too long in the call room".

Great Britain won a thrilling gold in a dramatic 4x100m relay at the World Championships in London. "Personally I think he has been unbelievable for the sport". He would take both golds in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics as well, along with a raft of World Championship medals and broken records.

In the women's 100 metres hurdles, it will be a two-horse race with former 100 metres hurdles champion Sally Pearson of Australia going up against world record holder Kendra Harrison of the U.S. for the title.


The Jamaican quartet of Tyquendo Tracey, Julian Forte, Micheal Campbell and Bolt led the eight-team second heat from beginning to the end.

"I drank like two bottles of water".

"I wasn't sure if I had won or not, I gave it my all but I could see Christian Coleman out of the corner of my eye", Mitchell-Blake told BBC Sport.

Bolt who ended his 100m career with a bronze on last Sunday looks to kiss goodbye to his sprinting career with gold in the relay. "He is still the best in the world", said Gatlin. "We had a cool breeze in the back and I think with that a lot of our muscles were cramping up from having our clothes off a little too early".

"I think it was the elements". He was running out there cold.

It completed a great night for the host nation's sprinters after their women had earlier taken silver behind the Americans in the sprint relay, their best performance since the first championships in 1983.
