Bolt fails to finish as GB stun in relay

For Bolt, it goes beyond winning. The look on the athletes' faces shows that this journey is perhaps feared more than the race.

Bolt wasn't trying to hear it.

Bolt has seven of the fastest 15 times in the 100m of all time.

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 USA for the title.

"A little bit disappointed but such is life", the eight-time Olympic gold medalist added of his bronze medal.

Because Bolt made us all his fans. If he could break the Jamaican national record (19.86 seconds by Don Quarrie), he could run the 100m. "They executed and ran well for a young team", Bolt said. The coach kept his promise to enter Bolt into the 100m.

In contrast to these images are some that reflect utter pride at the accomplishment that has just occurred on the track. The rest is history historic.

Bolt has stirred the Track and Field scene since his Olympic debut in the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. He left as a legend.

World-record holder Kendra Harrison finished fourth.

Usain Bolt's first love was not running but cricket and football.

He looked like a man amongst boys on the track, partially due to his height and partially due to his ability to leave his competition in the dust like a pack of Rugrats.

Coe may have gone about it the wrong way but the point he was trying to make about athletics' future in that ill-judged soundbite is a valid one.

"It nearly looks like I am winning!" The Jamaican 4x100m relay team have been nearly unbeatable since he arrived on the big stage, winning gold at the past seven Olympics and World Championships. Through a dint of hard work and sheer determination, Bolt became a cult figure in the sporting fraternity.

Gatlin secured an unexpected victory in the men's 100m final at IAAF World Championships on Saturday, beating crowd favourite Bolt on his final individual race before retirement.

Another attraction of the sport, besides from household names which the likes of football have in abundance, is the rivalry it creates, according to Coe. Bear in mind that Lance Armstrong managed to end his career without getting caught ... too. His planned retirement ended almost as shocking as his breakout Beijing.

Australian hurdling great Sally Pearson won the 100 metres hurdles world title for the second time on Saturday in the same stadium where she clinched 2012 Olympic gold. He was beaten by Gatling and American Chris Coleman. Gatlin also earned a bronze medal for the 200m and a silver for the 4x100m. Until this year, Bolt seemed unbeatable. The blazing fast times have evaporated.

"I did it for the fans", he said. "They're thinking and acting like veterans and I'm proud of them". I had to get back into some kind of running again. However, Bolt was all smiles and gracious in defeat. He also could be the richest.

Usain Bolt successfully steered his Jamaica team through to the final of the men's 4x100m, setting up the last race of his career.

Meanwhile, everyone is looking for the next Usain Bolt.

Van Niekerk is a superbly talented and brilliant athlete. Van Niekerk's 400m world record in Rio was legendary. Granted, this was because a member of his relay team tested positive. The 10,000m did take it out of me.
