Usain Bolt to leave void after running final relay leg Saturday

Bolt anchored the Jamaican team and got off a quick start before he began hobbling and quickly dropped out.

However, and in the meantime, as BBC pundit and four-time Olympic and eight-time World Championships gold medallist Michael Johnson said in an interview this week after watching the booing of Justin Gatlin.

Jamaica finished in 37.95 seconds - slower than Great Britain and the U.S. from the first heat - but will be expected to challenge for the podium in Saturday evening's final - Bolt's last race of his career.

Although missing out on a golden finish in the individual race, Bolt, turning 31 next week, will still stand as the greatest sprinter in history. What's more, Gatlin denies him the crutch of old age, which Bolt could have leaned on to justify his retirement and/or rationalize this loss.

The four - the same line-up who won Team GB's first 4x100m relay bronze in 32 years in Rio last summer - crossed the line 0.09 seconds behind the US, with Germany qualifying as third fastest. The IAAF World Championships are the coronation of Bolt's career, he planned to retire after the competition.

On the penultimate day of World Athletics Championship, star athletes Usain Bolt and MO Farah, will be present on the track one last time, in London.

Bolt (or GOAT - greatest of all time - as he's referred to on social media) came in third behind Justin Gatlin and Christian Coleman, both from the United States. "It doesn't change anything for me", Bolt said. The Americans were.05 seconds behind.

Defending women's 4x400m champions, Jamaica, boasts three finalists in the 400m and will line up in heat two 11:32 a.m. (5:32 a.m.) as the favourites, while the male 4x400m team, which won silver at last year's Olympics, enter heat one at 11:50 a.m. (5:50 a.m.).

He allowed five hits and three walks, while striking out six against the Yankees and has posted a 1.71 ERA in his last 21 innings. The sensational story of Judge has been a highlight of this season, but catching him in batting practice continues to be a treat.

"There are no words to describe how I am feeling".

"I am not too happy about it because an athlete who has been banned twice has just won one of our best medals". Gatlin did not let the jeers of the London crowd move him at all, saying "I tuned it out through the rounds and stayed the course".

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

Yohan Blake is still doubtful to run for Jamaica in the final as he struggles with injury. He wants to run in the final and has been taking part in relay training here.

Nor should we forget Ms Aisha Praught-Leer who made it to the final of the women's 3,000m steeplechase - only the third Jamaican to do so.

Germany clocked 42.34 seconds for the victory, well ahead of Jamaica, who crossed the line in 42.50.

The Netherlands, with 200-meter champion Dafne Schippers running the second leg, qualified on time.

It was the first time Bolt had been beaten at a major championships since the 4x100m relay at the 2007 worlds in Osaka.
