Usain Bolt guides Jamaica through to his farewell final in 4x100m relay

  • Usain Bolt and Mo Farah both ended without a World Athletics Championships gold on Saturday

The Jamaican quartet of Tyquendo Tracey, Julian Forte, Micheal Campbell and Bolt led the eight-team second heat from beginning to the end.

And Bolt relished the adulation at the 60,000-capacity Olympic Stadium.

"Even if he was just closing on the guys ahead - he wanted to give this crowd a show so they can say "I saw Usain Bolt run down the finishing straight".

For the best part of the past decade, though, Bolt has been 100 percent reliable in getting relay gold for the island nation.

The sprint legend, who had won the 100m, 200m and 4x100m Gold at the same venue during the 2012 Olympics, might not have had a flawless end to his career, but his records over the years will definitely make him a once-in-a-lifetime athlete. And the result in the relay is no longer a foregone conclusion.

Great Britain won the gold in 37.47 seconds while United States (37.52) and Japan (388.04) took the silver and bronze respectively.

"It would be pretty awesome", he said of his bid to win a fourth world 5,000m gold following victories in 2011, 2013 and 2015.

The U.S. women, meanwhile, had a better night.

Bolt's charisma, charm and character have made him one of the most recognisable and marketable people on the planet.

Still, Bolt was supportive of his young teammates.

"They were holding us too long in the call room", Yohan Blake told the media.

Nevertheless, Twitter was filled with praises and cheerful messages for Bolt, as they hailed him for being a legend on track.

It was yet another awesome upset in a championship of so many. They also advanced to the final. Olympic champion Thomas Roehler of Germany finished fourth.

The Netherlands, with 200-meter champion Dafne Schippers running the second leg, qualified on time. "My training will definitely be different and I'll be ready to run the 100 and 200 in the next world championships for sure".

It was Jamaica's first loss in a Men's 4x100m relay at the World Championships since 2007.

Usain Bolt was the overwhelming favourite to win the 100m race as he planned to retire after this tournament but things didn't quite work in his favour as he finished in third place behind Christian Coleman in second place and Jason Gatlin in the first place.
