Great Britain stuns US to win 4x4100m gold, Bolt injured

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.

Talbot added: "2012 didn't go our way and we have been working hard since then".

The eight-time Olympic gold medalist didn't remain on the ground for long. Forty minutes and two medal presentations before our run'.

Jamaica were afforded a rousing welcome from the crowd, a relaxed-looking Bolt applauding the stands, with pictures of him constantly shown on the stadium's big screens.

"They were holding us too long".

But last weekend, when Bolt had to settle for 100m bronze and drug cheat Justin Gatlin took his title, was proof enough that sport does not do fairy tales, not even for Bolt.

In the women's 100 metres hurdles, it will be a two-horse race with former 100 metres hurdles champion Sally Pearson of Australia going up against world record holder Kendra Harrison of the USA for the title.

They won in 37.47 seconds, with the USA taking silver at 0.05sec and Japan with a surprise bronze.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said new United Nations sanctions targeting North Korea are a "very good outcome". They also welcomed the United Nation Security Council's move on August 5 to ban certain exports from North Korea.

"The race was 10 minutes late, we were kept 40 minutes".

But Jamaica's 110m hurdles world champion Omar McLeod - who ran the first leg - likewise pointed the finger at organisers for denying his country's greatest star a more fitting swansong.

Bolt collapsed on the track, as the British, American and Japanese teams soared ahead to secure their first-, second- and third-place podium spots, respectively. It felt like it was there but the reason I lost because I couldn't get it.

"A lot of the pain is from disappointment from losing the race", Team Jamaica doctor Kevin Jones told reporters (via the Associated Press) about how Bolt was feeling after the event.

Michael Johnson, a former world champion, stated that Gatlin was being jeered because of the way the media had presented him to the public.

On an August night in 2008, Usain Bolt announced his arrival.

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