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.

He got up with the help of his teammates Blake, Omar McLeod and Julian Forte to eventually limp across the finish line and offer the crowd a tearful wave. The last three weeks have been hard for him, you know. Usain was really cold.

"Those boys are coming for me - they are hungry", said Farah, who is aiming to defend his 5,000m title after winning 10,000m gold at the World Championships in London.

It means Bolt misses out on matching Allyson Felix's record World Championships medal haul of 15, sending him into retirement in disappointing fashion.

"I think the public have probably heard enough about us being the best generation of sprinting, with no results".

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. "40 minutes and two medal presentations before our run".

Justin Gatlin, the new world 100m champion who was a member of the U.S. silver medal winning team said the cool conditions and a decision to get athletes on the track early and have extended introductions might have affected Bolt's injury.

"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.

"The sport is going to drop a bit (following the departure of Bolt) but we still have guys for Jamaica to fill that void that he will leave".

"(But) I personally think that we were held in the stadium a little too long without our clothes on, and there was a little draught in there.

"I think it was the elements". Personally, I felt like experience doesn't necessarily play a part in that, you've just got to come out here no matter what your age is and compete. He was running out there cold.

The USA's 100m champion, Justin Gatlin, had sympathy for Bolt and still expects him to return to the track, with the pair even having a bet.
