Bolt pulls up injured as Britain wins 4x100m relay

Bolt pulls up injured as Britain wins 4x100m relay

"We really wanted to send him off in style, send him off with a gold medal".

The memories of his bronze medal in the 100 metre final hung in the minds of the British-come-Jamaican fans as they willed track and field's poster boy to a win.

Running the second leg, Felix and her teammates crossed first in a season's leading time of 41.84 seconds, beating Britain and Switzerland. The Americans were.05 seconds behind.

Meanwhile, Bolt and his fellow Jamaicans ran the relay in 39.95 seconds, with Bolt grabbing the baton and passing his competitors.

"It's cramp in his left hamstring", Dr Kevin Jones the Jamaica Team Doctor said.

After 16 years of competing on the worldwide stage, fans of athletics will likely never see Usain Bolt run another competitive track race.

Chelsea set new record in abysmal start against Burnley
Dyche will be without striker Andre Gray as the forward is set to join Watford after a deal was agreed on Wednesday. Burnley , however, have lost all three of their opening day clashes in the top flight.


The drama wasn't done there though.

Rather than bemoaning a far from fitting end to the 30-year-old's distinguished career, the crowd inside London Stadium were lost in celebration for the victorious home nation.

Ujah said: "I am proud of these guys and those behind the scenes".

"To be holding us so long was atrocious". After winning the opening 100m in Rio, Bolt said: "Somebody said I can become immortal".

"They are definitely running alongside us, and that's what we need".

If it was a foible of the schedule that played a major role in Bolt's demise, it will be a mere footnote in the history of the sport which he has rewritten over the course of his career.

Stocks plunge over North Korea tensions
Shares of Kohl's were down 8.4%, while Macy's fell 4% after the department store operators reported a fall in sales. Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index plunged by 2 percent, while South Korea's Kospi Index slumped by 1.7 percent.


Yet in the same stadium on Saturday, they attempted in vain to reprise that triumphant night, Farah ending up with silver in his final track race, over 5,000 metres, and Bolt suffering his anti-climactic farewell. "We are on top of the world".

But the Ethiopians had a plan.

"Its been a tough season, but I'm really lucky and thankful to be part of this team", said Gemili.

"One of them was going to sacrifice themselves and that's what they did tonight". "I worked hard for this day. Usain Bolt is a great athlete".

There were still multiple British medals on the night. The United States placed second, while Japan finished in third.

The U.S. men took silver in 37.52 but for a nation that used to be totally dominant in the event, it was only their second medal in the last eight global finals after a series of world and Olympic disqualifications.

Perhaps we've got to ensure that all our players give their all and hope that City are off-colour, but it can happen that way. If you think about Antonio Conte , Pep Guardiola , Jurgen Klopp and Mourinho - it is a very good championship now.


"Thank you so much to this incredible crowd".
