Slick Britain wins shock 4x100 relay gold as Bolt pulls up

The short and the long of running

Just last week, Bolt finished third in his final appearance as an individual, but hoped to find redemption at the World Championships in London as a part of Jamaica's 4×100-meter race.

Jamaica are aiming for a fifth successive world title in the event but will face a stiff challenge from the USA who won the first heat in 37.70 seconds, with Christian Coleman, silver medalist in the 100 meters, running the anchor leg.

Bolt was already chasing the British and American teams when he started the final leg of the race, and he didn't even come close to the finish line before pulling up.

The GB men, featuring Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake who finished fourth in the 200m, ran the nation's second fastest time ever of 37.76 behind heat winners and fastest qualifiers US who clocked 37.70.

The USA took silver in 37.52secs and Japan claimed the bronze.

It was a remarkable comeback for the Australian as she had suffered two years of injury, missing both the 2015 world championships and the Olympics last year.

"We had so much self-belief, we didn't come here to just get on the podium, we came to win and that's what we did".

Dawn Harper-Nelson of the United States was second, .04 seconds behind, and Pamela Dutiewicz of Germany took bronze in 12.72.

Watch the dramatic end to Bolt's athletic's career in the video player above.

"He kept apologising to us but we told him there was no need to apologise", Forte said.

"We really wanted to send him off in style, send him off with a gold medal".

Rohler, from Germany, made a 88.26m throw in his second attempt and finished fourth while Beijing worlds victor Yego was eliminated after the first three rounds. The German beat Jakub Vadlejch of the Czech Republic by 16 centimeters.

Five years after winning the 100-meter hurdles at the London Games, Pearson won the world title in 12.59 seconds.

Earlier in the morning's session, Great Britain women's 4x100m team - Asha Philip, Desiree Henry, Dina Asher-Smith and Daryll Neita - eased through to the final, stopping the clock in 41.93 seconds - a new season's best.

Eight-time Olympic champion Bolt bows out of athletics having also won 11 world gold medals but failed to add to that tally in London this summer having also surrendered his 100m crown to Justin Gatlin - a race he finished third in. "We are on top of the world".
