Bolt wins relay heats in his penultimate race

Justin Gatlin slams IAAF treatment after 100m worlds win: It's unsportsmanlike

Justin Gatlin is an athlete of his time, not a villain

Usain Bolt last race live streaming online: The relay race will be the final event of the evening's proceedings at the penultimate day of the Athletics World Championship.

Gatlin's victory in the 100m final, edging out U.S. teammate Christian Coleman into silver, saw the American sprinter consign Usain Bolt to a third-place finish in the Jamaican's final competitive 100m race.

Jamaican team doctor Dr Kevin Jones said Bolt had suffered from "cramp in his left hamstring".

It was one of, if not the, greatest night in the history of British relay sprinting.

China, silver medalist two years ago, was fourth in 38.34.

Like Bolt, Farah would finish his career with an usual feeling of defeat - he had won this event in the past three world championships and two Olympic Games, together with three world titles and two Olympic gold medals in 10,000m.

"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".

60,000 people gasped as their hero jumped, hobbled and then crumbled to the floor, as Great Britain sprinted away to a maiden gold medal with the US and Japan in tow.

"We can try and be the best in our country and we will still come together as a team and hopefully we won't have to wait another 13 years for a global title".

But Talbot, the oldest in a young team at 26, said: "I would take all those bad times again for this one night, becoming world champions in our home country".

"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", said Mitchell-Blake.

Running out of lane two in the second heat on Saturday, the Jamaican quartet of Christania Williams, Natasha Morrison, Jura Levy, Sashalee Forbes finished second to Germany to book an automatic qualifying spot in the final, which takes place later.

The changeover to Talbot was excellent and the bend specialist didn't disappoint as America and Jamaica realised they were already playing catch-up.

Lasitskene, who missed last year's Rio Olympics because of Russia's suspension, failed at 1.99 twice but regained form thereafter.

"We definitely fully embraced the crowd", she said.
