Aug 5, 2017; London, United Kingdom; Usain Bolt (JAM) reacts after placing third in the 100m in 9.95 in his last individual race of his career during the IAAF World Championships in Athletics at London Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Park.

Bolt broke down on the anchor leg for the Jamaican team.

Farah has won Great Britain's sole gold medal of the championships - the 10,000m on the first day - and is aiming to mount a double defence of the titles he won in 2013 and 2015.

Gatlin, who was twice banned from track and field after testing positive for drugs, clocked 9.92 for the gold medal, Coleman took silver at 9.94 seconds, and Bolt, 9.95 for bronze.

Bolt will feature in the 4x100m heats this morning and - all things being equal, will return later to compete in the final in what will be his final race after a career that saw him become the most dominant sprinter in history and the face of the sport.

Of course, at the 2012 Olympics it wasn't just the Brits that were the star attraction the Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt being one of the most memorable winners. "It is brilliant", Bolt said after the race.

Also, there have been several disappointing performances elsewhere, not least yesterday when women's sprint hurdles defending champion Miss Danielle Williams was eliminated in the semi-final.

She was beaten into third by the US' Koris Carter who took the gold and Dalilah Muhammad, also of the US, who was second.

We had a 100m winner Gatlin booed to the rafters and a 200m victor Ramil Guliyev, whose winning time was almost a second slower than Bolt's best and who ended up being interrogated in the victory press conference about his adopted country Turkey's doping record.


"I think I almost cried" Bolt said."I was just saying goodbye. That was it. Saying goodbye to my events. Saying goodbye to everything."Reuters

But first, Bolt and his Jamaican teammates must navigate the heat set for 10:55 a.m. (4:55 a.m. Jamaica time) and avoid another slip-up in a championship that has left questions swirling about Jamaica's spot as the world's ultimate sprinting conveyor belt.

Eighty meters in, Ta Lou appeared to be the woman who would engineer a surprise win, but Bowie's breakneck lunge at the line, as she and Ta Lou crossed simultaneously-with Bowie tumbling onto the track-ultimately put her atop of the podium.

"There are no words to describe how I am feeling".

"I went to stay in Teddington because that's where my family are now and I was like "No, I need to get back to the hotel". He wants to run in the final and has been taking part in relay training here.

Felix has won 14 medals at the world championships and can move up to 16 if she runs the 4x400 relay and the United States wins medals in both events.

But while the image of the eight-time Olympian collapsed on the track nursing his calf, long after the race had finished, certainly made for an unwelcome sight, it was a night to remember for Great Britain's golden quartet.

Germany won the second heat in 42.34.

The Netherlands, with 200-meter champion Dafne Schippers running the second leg, qualified on time.
