Usain Bolt's furious team-mates blame organisers for 4x100m injury

"The last three weeks have been hard for him, we hope for the best", Jones said.

"In the warm-up area we give ourselves respect and greet each other", Gatlin said of Bolt, who bows out of competition with a startling haul of eight Olympic gold medals and 14 world medals, nine of which are gold.

But there was to be high drama as a visibly swearing Bolt pulled up in obvious pain, allowing the British quartet of Chijindu Ujah, Adam Gemili, Daniel Talbot and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake claim gold in 37.47 seconds, with the Justin Gatlin-led USA four taking silver at 0.05sec and Japan a surprise bronze (38.04).

"To see a hero like that, a champion of the sport go down like that, that's a true friend, I didn't like it one bit".

"You have to think about the athletes. because we were in the mixed zone too long, over 40 minutes".

He said: 'I think they were holding us too long in the call room.

Nevertheless, Scaramucci also indicated that this White House faces broader problems than a single adviser. He added that the President needed " more loyalists" to implement his plans.

Saturday night was not exactly a warm one in London and Omar McLeod, who began Jamaica's effort, echoed Blake's frustration with the organisers.

Great Britain came from behind amid Bolt's collapse to top the United States for a gold medal, and Jamaica landed a did-not-finish designation, as noted by ESPN.

Bolt acknowledged that Yohan Blake would likely come in for the final, all the while praising his less experienced relay teammates.

Coleman told Omnisport: "I think we're in contention to win, just like anybody".

The 4x100m final was Bolt's farewell race and a lot was being said about it, especially after the Jamaican legend was beaten in the 100m final last week. "Usain Bolt's name will always live on". "Tonight is not going to define who he is". And this is his farewell tour, his farewell race, so we have to take our hat off to him. "I lost all my sweat and body heat", Gatlin said. The Atlanta-born sprinter already has his eyes set on adding the 200m to his repertoire in Qatar in two years.

"We were excited, we were ready, we had been doing some hand offs and everybody was feeling good, but they kept us hanging around for a long time, you know".
