NY [U.S.]: "Oh no" echoed across the globe as Usain Bolt's final race at the world championships ended in him getting injured and hobbling on the track, whimpering in agony. We were over warm.

The eight-time Olympic gold medalist didn't remain on the ground for long.

"It was 40 minutes and two medal presentations before our run".

"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". "They were holding us too long in the call room", he said.

However, Blake - who missed out on a medal in the 100m, failed to make the 200m final and was an injury doubt in the hours leading up to the race - was overtaken around the bench by Jaylen Bacon and Daniel Talbot.

It was also Bolt's first-ever loss in an Olympic or world championship semifinal.

With Usain Bolt unable to finish the race Great Britain was able to take victory with a time of 37.47 seconds whilst the United States came second with a time of 37.52 seconds.

But I mean at the end of the day, I think the president has a very good idea of who the leakers are inside the White House. He added that it's not serving the President's interests to still have that wing around.

He had been bidding for a 12th world championship gold to bring down the curtain on his glittering career, but instead limped out of the London Stadium arena.

"He's still the man, and this is farewell so we take our hat off to him, hope he gets well soon".

"The young runners in our team - it is just about executing and coming through the race for them", he said.

Jamaican sprint king Bolt could only manage bronze in his final individual outing in the 100m last weekend, with long-time rival Justin Gatlin proving an unpopular victor ahead of the upcoming Coleman in London. I felt it. A hero of the sport to go down like that?

"It's a cramp in his left hamstring, but a lot of the pain is from disappointment from losing the race", Jamaican team doctor Kevin Jones said. The fans loved seeing Usain Bolt run one last time, but it was hard to see him end with an injury.

"I gave it all", Farah said. You can also watch the entire World Athletics Championship on Star Sports Select 2 and Select 2 HD.

While Usain Bolt was cheered as he received his bronze medal but Gatlin got the opposite reaction.
