Athletics - World Athletics Championships - men's 4 x 100 meters relay final - London Stadium, London, Britain - August 12, 2017 - Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake of Britain wins the gold medal. And to see a true legend, a true champion go out there and struggling like that.

It was bitterly disappointing for Bolt with the team doctor saying the injury was simply a cramp in his muscle, and the pain on Bolt's face was mostly from losing the race.

After the race, Bolt's Jamaican teammates laid the blame for the great sprinter's untimely injury at the feet of the championships' organisers, who they claim forced the runners to wait for forty minutes in a cold call room prior to the race.

"I think the public have probably heard enough about us being the best generation of sprinting, with no results. We waited a really long time", added an emotional McLeod, who said that he was desperate to help send off Bolt with another gold medal. He'll be ready. He has a passion for the sport, he loves the fans, the fans love him, it's not something you can walk away too easy from.

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

"Two gold medals is unbelievable for me", Bowie said.

Bolt, who finished third in the individual 100m behind victor Justin Gatlin and Christian Coleman, said: "I enjoy relays more than anything".

"Any stadium that Usain Bolt decides to grace ends up being full, that tells you all you need to know", Campbell said. In fact Usain said to me, "Yohan, I think this is insane".

"They came out here and did the job we wanted them to do, and that's to get us to the finals".

Bolt's farewell hasn't gone according to plan after he was surprisingly beaten in the 100m final which was the last individual race of his career. "Tonight is not going to define who he is". Great Britain came in second with a time of 42.12 seconds and Jamaica pulled in third, seven-hundredths of a second later. The was his farewell race and we wish him the best and hope he recovers soon.
