Mitchell-Blake, who had to settle for fourth in the individual 200m, roared with delight at the finish in scenes similar to Mark Lewis-Francis' cries of triumph when he crossed the line at the 2004 Athens Olympics to earn Britain sprint relay gold.

As a farewell it was dramatic, but not golden. For Great Britain, it's their first gold medal in the 4×100-meters relay, with Jamaica winning the last four editions.

Medical staff and his teammates rushed to the 30 year old's aid, with a wheelchair even produced.

And with Jamaica's hopes hitting the deck with their stricken hero it was Japan who raced home to snatch the bronze.

It was assumed he had torn a muscle badly such was the sharp manner he pulled up yet incredibly doctors later could confirm no injury.

"It's sad to see", Talbot said of Bolt's ending, which was put down to hamstring cramp.

Usain Bolt's bid to bring the curtain down on his glittering career with a 15th world gold medal remained on track as Jamaica qualified for the final of the 4x100m relay.

The GB men, featuring Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake who finished fourth in the 200m, ran the nation's second fastest time ever of 37.76 behind heat winners and fastest qualifiers United States of America who clocked 37.70.

Unfortunately, Bolt's final race was cut short when he pulled up lame on the final leg.

The official result recorded that the Jamaicans did not finish but Bolt had been absolutely determined to ensure he completed the last race after a matchless career in which he won 19 major championship gold medals.

"I think it was the elements (that caused the injury)". I am sorry he got this injury. "They had the game plan; one of them was going to sacrifice themselves. and the better man won on the day", Farah said.

"It was a recipe". If it was before any priors I had in my life, I didn't understand it. "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". That's what he suffered with.

"You can't really have this night define what he's done in the past", Gatlin added. He has done fantastic things.

Ujah said: "I am proud of these guys and those behind the scenes".
