Usain Bolt's teammates blame race organisers for his injury

Ethiopia's Muktar Edris finds the answer to beating Mo Farah

Ethiopia's Muktar Edris finds the answer to beating Mo Farah

Even had he not been injured, Bolt would have been hard-pressed to catch Great Britain's Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake, who held off 100m silver medallist Christian Coleman of the U.S. to claim a famous gold for the host nation.

Bolt was already chasing the British and American teams when he started the final leg of the race, and he didn't even come close to the finish line before pulling up. "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".

Usain Bolt was finally able to cross the finish line, which will be his last time to ever do so due to the fact that he is retiring after this big event. "40 minutes and two medal presentations before our run", said Yohan Blake, who branded the wait as "crazy".

"We keep warming up and waiting, then warming up and waiting". To see a true legend, a true champion go out there and struggling like that. But it was ridiculous. That long wait contributed (to Bolt's injury).

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

The Great Britain quartet ended up beating the US in a dramatic race while Bolt shrugged aside organisers who brought on a wheelchair for him and was able to limp across the line. "I think they really need to look into that and do something about it", Forte said.

Great Britain, GB stun the United State of America, USA, to win the 4x100m gold medal at the IAAF World Athletics Championship in London on Saturday. He's a performer and I think we can all appreciate it.

No matter the result of the relay, organisers said Bolt will be afforded a dedicated lap of honour on Sunday in tribute to his unbelievable track career.

Jamaican team doctor Kevin Jones later clarified Bolt suffered from a hamstring cramp, but the physical pain was overshadowed by the emotional anguish. From 2008 on, Usain Bolt has done awesome things.

Farah, who won the 10,000 title in the opening day at the London Stadium, settled for silver behind Ethiopian Muktar Edris in his final championship race on the track.
