Eight-time Olympic champion Bolt sensationally pulled up injured with 50 metres to go of the 4x100 metres relay and fell to the track with Great Britain taking gold just ahead of the U.S. and Japan.

The 4x100m relay witnessed the disaster, as Bolt crumpled on the race track clutching his leg in visible pain and tears, reports CNN. "We had a cool breeze in the back and I think with that a lot of our muscles were cramping up from having our clothes off a little too early".

"It was cold. Usain said to me "I don't like this", because we keep on warming up, and sitting, and warming up".

"It's been brilliant. The energy in the stadium is outstanding", Bolt said, hailing the deafening support in the packed-out London Stadium "not just for me but the whole championships". "40 minutes and two medal presentations before our run", said Yohan Blake.

But after tonight's triumph, he said: "2012 didn't go our way and we have been working hard since then". But it was ridiculous.

Anthony Scaramucci: Trump Should Have Been 'Much Harsher' On White Supremacists
Scaramucci said the president can't be told what to do, but said those around him should "give him direct advice" and "be blunt with him".

"They kept us in the call room extremely long in our running kits, we were getting cold and it's not the warmest weather over here and they kept us a while".

Britain's men set a national record of 37.47sec to take gold, with the United States second in 37.52 and Japan third in 38.04.

The race played out exactly like that, although the Brits came out of nowhere to snatch the gold from the Americans.

Farah claimed gold in the 10,000 metres earlier in the week, but competing in the last major track race of his illustrious career Mo was denied the double that he has become so accustom to winning on the biggest stages by Ethiopia's Muktar Edris.

The greatest sprinter of all time probably deserved a better ending but his swansong came crashing to an end when he pulled up with a cramp on the anchor leg of the world 4x100m relay won by Britain.

Where is Usain Bolt's last race?

"He's still the man, and this is farewell so we take our hat off to him, hope he gets well soon".

Dr Kevin Jones, Jamaica's team doctor, confirmed Bolt's injury.

Newly-crowned 110m hurdles champion Omar McLeod, Jamaica's lead-off runner, added: "Everybody was jelly, everybody was pumped".

"Knowing how Usain performs, he's always ready, he's always making sure he's not injured and it's very rare to see Usain injured when he comes to performances".
