Justin Gatlin is an athlete of his time, not a villain
With Jamaica pulled up Great Britain ran home in a victory as surprising as Jamaica's last place, ahead of the US in silver and Japan bronze.
Since confirming his sprinting dominance with triple gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Bolt spent nine seasons amassing 19 global golds, 13 of which have come in individual events. "He's fantastic, he's a legend, he's built such a legacy that athletes around the world will be able to use going into their career".
The wonderful career of Usain Bolt has come to an end in the worst way possible.
Anchoring Jamaica in the final of the 4x100 metre relay at the World Championships, Bolt pulled up with a leg injury down the home straight as he took the baton in third place and with plenty of work to do. Rico Freimuth took silver with 8,564 points, while German teammate Kai Kazmirek was third with 8,488.
It made for the most dramatic, unexpected and disappointing end to the career of the most decorated athlete ever.
Regardless of whether he returns to the track, Bolt is sure to be remembered as an all-time great - having secured 100m and 200m doubles at three successive Olympic Games as well as setting new world records in each event.
It was less convincing, however, for the men's four, who progressed as fastest qualifiers into the final. Britain went on to beat the United States in a tight finish. The Americans were seen as the favourites, with Bolt showing signs of weakness in the individual 100 meters and most expecting him to start his leg with a large deficit.

The women's quartet, of Zoey Clark, Laviai Nielsen, Perri Shakes-Drayton and Emily Diamond, crossed in a time of 3:24.74 - one second faster than the time that won Team GB bronze in the event last summer.
Australian hurdling great Sally Pearson could well add a second world title to her trophy cabinet and banish memories of two years of injury hell.
Since that gold medal in 2007, the USA men had only won one other medal in the event, a silver in 2013.
The relay heats are set for early Saturday.
He handed the baton on in flawless style to Darren Talbot who maintained the lead around the top bend before giving Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake enough of a lead that he might be able to hold off the chasing Coleman and crucially Bolt.
