Usain Bolt, India's relay teams in action

Ethiopia's Muktar Edris finds the answer to beating Mo Farah

Bolt ends his career with 11 world and eight Olympic golds. We kept on warming up.

And team-mate Yohan Blake, who ran the third leg, slammed competition organisers for allowing the women's high jump medal presentation to over-run and allow the runners on track to cool down.

"The sport is going to drop a bit (following the departure of Bolt) but we still have guys for Jamaica to fill that void that he will leave".

He said: 'I think they were holding us too long in the call room.

It was the first time Bolt had lost a World Championships 100m final he had started, having been disqualified for a false start in Daegu in 2011.

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 United States for the title.

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. "In fact Usain said to me, "Yohan, I think this is crazy", he said.

The US, with individual gold and silver medallists Justin Gatlin and Christian Coleman running the second and fourth legs, had been expected to push the Jamaicans all the way but they were always trailing the slick Britons.

Talbot's leg was strong, though both Bacon and Blake made up some ground in the third leg, and it seemed that we could get an exciting final 100m in the last final of the evening.

Dr Kevin Jones, the Jamaica team doctor, said of Bolt's injury: "It's cramp in his left hamstring but a lot of pain is from the disappointment from losing the race".

The official result was that Jamaica's team did not complete the race, but Bolt, who won 19 major championships in the career, was fully committed to complete his last race.

That is exactly what the world witnessed at the IAAF World Championships in London on Saturday. I think we have introduced him as a villain. "We will go and prepare well for tonight".
