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

Running in his penultimate race of his illustrious career, Bolt eased past the finishing line as he helped the defending champions Jamaica win the second heat in 37.95 seconds, their seasons best, to enter the final round with third best time.

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

"Usain was getting cold and he said "I don't like this".

New 100m world champion Justin Gatlin has opened up on the reaction he received from the local crowd in London at the IAAF World Championships last week.

"I came to the world championships and got the silver medal and I think it's definitely the start of a great career".

Team-mate Julian Forte, running in his first World Championships, added: "I really wanted to be a part of the team that sends Usain off in style". He's a performer and I think we can all appreciate it.

Team Jamaica was facing off against a tough field with Team USA and Great Britain.

Bolt's teammates complained that his problem was caused by organizers keeping the relay teams waiting in the cold before their race as several medal ceremonies were held.

"Two gold medals is awesome for me", Bowie said.

CJ Ujah, Adam Gemili, Daniel Talbot set up the win with devastating individual legs and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake saw off American Christian Coleman to ensure that the home nation tasted gold at the World Athletics Championships. It felt like it was there but the reason I lost because I couldn't get it.

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. "He is still the best in the world", Gatlin said. "They were holding us too long in the call room", he said.

Farah, who won the 10,000 title in dramatic fashion of the opening day at the London Stadium, had to settle for silver behind Ethiopian Muktar Edris in his final championship race on the track.
