Great Britain stormed to the gold medal in the 4x100m relay at the World Championships - as Usain Bolt’s career ended in injury and tears.

A British record of 37.47 seconds was the third quickest time in the history of the event, as Team GB held off the challenge of the United States.

 

Bolt, beaten into third in the 100m, ran the anchor leg for Jamaica but pulled up injured as Neethaneel Mitchell-Blake drove GB to victory.

USA finished second, with a time of 37.52, while Japan took third (38.04).

CJ Ujah made a terrific start for Team GB, before Adam Gemili - making a mockery of his 200m exclusion - put Team GB in command down the back straight with a superb show of pace and power.

Danny Talbot took up the baton to keep the lead before Mitchell-Blake held off Christian Coleman to claim gold.

Bolt attempted to get Jamaica into contention on the final leg, but just as he opened up into his long stride, Bolt pulled up, clutching his hamstring and collapsing to the track.
