Usain Bolt bows out in agony

The Jamaica team doctor later explained that Bolt had to pull up due to cramp in his hamstring.

Check out how Twitterati reacted to Bolt's final race.

U.S. finished second, with a time of 37.52, while Japan took third (38.04).

And in a heartbreaking ending to an outstanding track and field career, Bolt collapsed on the track after suffering a hamstring injury.

Mo Farah says he will take "nothing for granted" following Usain Bolt's failure to win the world 100m gold medal as the pair prepare for their final major championship appearances on Saturday.

Farah, who races at 8.20pm, is wary of the competition - which includes Kenyan-born American Paul Chelimo who came second behind him in the 5,000m at the Rio Olympics past year.

"You have to think about the athletes because we were in the mixed zone too long, over 40 minutes". It was insane. They were holding us too long. Forty minutes and two medal presentations before our run'. We were over warm.


When asked if bowing out will erase what he has done, the 30 year old Jamaican said; "For me, I don't think one championship is going to change what I've done".

"It hurts to see a true legend, a true champion go out there and struggle like that".

Bolt announced himself as a sporting superstar by storming to the 100m crown in Beijing 2008 in a world record 9.69 seconds, even slowing down to celebrate before reaching the line. "I left everything out there on the track".

It follows Bolt's final solo effort last weekend where he took bronze, behind rival Justin Gatlin.

The Jamaican left the track with a wave, but largely unnoticed as London Stadium celebrated what had appeared an unlikely gold and the host nation's first in this event since Athens 2004. "It was ridiculous, man", he said.

"That long wait contributed". The Americans were seen as the favourites, with Bolt showing signs of weakness in the individual 100 meters and most expecting him to start his leg with a large deficit.
