Usain Bolt's potentially final race ends in injury

Great Britain's Asha Philip Daryll Neita Dina Asher Smith and Desiree Henry celebrate winning a silver medal in the 4x100m relay final at the World Championships at London Stadium

Furious Yohan Blake hit out at organisers after Usain Bolt's dramatic final race at the World Championships.

Bolt's London finale ended in disappointment as he suffered a muscle cramp before the end of the 4x100m relay final which was won by Great Britain.

'We're world champions, world champions, ' Mitchell-Blake said through tears of happiness.

It was the third member of the quartet, Julian Forte, who articulated how they were feeling. Bolt who ended his 100m career with a bronze on last Sunday looks to kiss goodbye to his sprinting career with gold in the relay. "It was insane", added the 2011 world 100m champion Blake.

"We were in there getting ready to go for quite a while, it's not the warmest weather".

Henry added: "We have a unique bond, in terms of confidence we've got it so its all about the speed. Then we saw a true legend, a true champion go out there and struggling like that".

The relay team of the Great Brittain used this in the best possible way and won the gold medal along with setting the new European record in this discipline 37,47 seconds.

There will be a fair amount of emotion from the stands as Mo Farah also runs in his last track race - the 5,000 metres final.

He said: "It's heart-wrenching". "Usain was really cold".

Chennai: If the split in the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam ( AIADMK ) that happened in February was between V.K. Palaniswami and Panneerselvam . "Due to an extraordinary situation, she is not able to discharge her duties".

"It was ridiculous, man". His body can no longer hold up. I drank like two bottles of water.

Bolt last week had to settle for bronze in his last individual race, the 100m. "In fact, Usain said to me, 'Yohan, I think this is insane, 40 minutes and two medal presentations before our run'". I am sorry he (Bolt) got this injury. He is still the best in the world.

Despite the sour taste this likely leaves in everyone's mouths, Usain Bolt shouldn't be considered anything less than the GOAT. Bolt is turning 31-years-old in August and has repeatedly said that he is done after this and won't be going to any more world championships.

Talking to tabloids and media, Bolt was all but excited ahead of his final 4×100 meters. He would have wanted to cross the finish line.

"I think they were holding us too long in the call room", Blake told reporters.

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

"There's a lot more decisions to be made in a shorter race". What I'm about to say would be inconceivable for Usain Bolt, but. since his reign began at the 2008 Olympics, he had never been injured in a major race.

"What we are witnessing is so powerful, so inspirational, he can't be replaced".
