Omar McLeod, who led off the Jamaican team, said: "It's heart-wrenching, I gave it my all and I really wanted Usain to leave golden - even if it was just a medal". On the seventh, he threw his head back with a grimace, hopped twice to keep weight off his left leg and somersaulted to the track. "In fact, Usain said to me, 'Yohan, I think this is insane, 40 minutes and two medal presentations before our run'". Britain went on to beat the United States in a tight finish. The fans loved seeing Usain Bolt run one last time, but it was hard to see him end with an injury. To be holding us so long, it was atrocious.

"He is still the best in the world", said Justin Gatlin, Bolt's American rival who ended up with 100m gold and relay silver.

His teammates on the once-fabled Jamaican sprint squad were far from unmatchable, too.

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 this evening's final - Bolt's last race of his career.

In a statement, the Jamaican team doctor Kevin Jones said Bolt had suffered cramp in his left hamstring but that most his pain ultimately came from the disappointment of losing. I would ask him to accept our gratitude for an incredible career which raised our national profile; a career in which he proudly carried his Jamaicanness around the world; a career which contributed much to development of a sport industry in Jamaica; a career which rescued global athletics.

Spain sees record number of migrant arrivals in 2017
The migrants were eventually rounded up and taken to a reception centre, where they can apply for asylum in Spain. The migrants were blocked by Moroccan police before they reached the double fence at the border.

Bolt's massively gutting end to his career came days after he finished third in his final 100m race. "Usain Bolt's name will always live on".

But it was hardly the sendoff anyone anticipated for the world-record sprinter.

At the previous three Worlds Britain's men have failed to get the baton round, with team-mates turning on each other in the wake of their failure in Beijing two years ago.

Olympic silver medallist Mayer amassed a total of 8,768 points from the 10 disciplines in the gruelling two-day event.

Rather, he has insisted video be released of the full 12-round affair so fans can see that he got the better of McGregor. The third installment of the SHOWTIME Sports series ALL ACCESS: Mayweather vs.

Even though the crowd got to witness a victory for their home country, Bolt got a bigger reception than them, and most people were watching him with great concern as he was walking around the track with tears.

"I gave it all", Farah said.

The penultimate day of the championships also has former 100 metres hurdles champion Sally Pearson of Australia going up against world record holder Kendra Harrison of the USA for the title.

Five years after winning the 100-meter hurdles at the London Games, Pearson won the world title in 12.59 seconds.
