Usian Bolt Injured In his Last Major Race + Gifts Gold To BRITAIN In Dramatic Relay At London Championships

Usain Bolt's track career ended in agony today as he pulled up injured in the 4x100m relay - while Great Britain stormed to a sensational victory.

The sprint legend grimaced in agony and collapsed on the track on the final straight as the home team raced to victory in the thrilling final at the World Championships in London.

The British quartet of CJ Ujah, Adam Gemili, Danny Talbot and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake pipped the United States to gold in a world-leading 37.47 seconds. The USA took silver in 37.52secs and Japan the bronze.

It was a sad end to the Jamaican's spectacular career, which has seen him win 19 global gold medals – eight Olympic victories and 11 from the World Championships.

As Britain went on to win gold, Bolt was tended to with his head in hands.

After a short while, though, he rose gingerly to his feet and limped across the line to huge cheers from the 56,000 crowd.
