The much hyped 4x100m Relay final at the 2017 World Athletics Championship in London ended in a whimper for 100m World Record holder and fastest man in the world, Jamaican Usain Bolt.
Jamaica had been in third when Bolt took the baton, and the Usain of old would have believed he could have chased his rivals down.
In his valedictory season, however, the three-time Olympic 100m and 200m champion is no longer the force he was, even as his draw remains undimmed.
50m into the anchor leg of the relay race, he grimaced and pulled up before collapsing into his lane.
His fall created mixed emotion in the arena. The crowd were torn between cheering their own victorious team GB and lamenting Bolt’s crash.
Few had seen the greatest career in athletics history ending like this, and Bolt must now regret not stepping away after his three golds in Rio.
