Great Britain won a thrilling gold in a dramatic 4x100m relay at the World Championships in London.

Never before has a British team won a world sprint gold, but the quartet of CJ Ujah, Adam Gemili, Danny Talbot and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake ran a near-perfect race to hold off the fancied US team, with Japan taking bronze as Bolt collapsed halfway down the home straight.

But there was a sad end to the sprinting career of the great Usain Bolt, who pulled up injured on the anchor leg for Jamaica.

Bolt received the baton with Jamaica in third but, halfway down the straight, the all-time great started clutching his left thigh, eventually falling to the ground

A wheelchair was brought to his side before he was helped to his feet and managed to limp away, but it means he leaves his final championship with only a bronze from the individual 100m.

The Justin Gatlin-led US team took silver, 0.05secs behind, while Japan claimed a surprise bronze (38.04).

The win capped a fantastic night for Great Britain in the sprint relays, the women’s quartet of Asha Philip, Desiree Henry, Dina Asher-Smith and Daryll Neita having claimed silver behind an impressive American team a few minutes earlier.
