After his injury on the track, Bolt was comforted by his teammates and also by Twittterati who were full of praise for his running career.
Usain Bolt bows out of mainstream athletics tonight as he runs for the final time at the London Stadium in the 4x100m relay. I don't want to say this but I understand we need to be ready early but I think we took our clothes off a little too early.
"It was cold. Usain said to me "I don't like this", because we keep on warming up, and sitting, and warming up".
Gatlin, who beat Coleman and Bolt to 100-meter gold last weekend, has previously expressed his opinion that his long-time rival will return to the sport in the future and reiterated those thoughts following an unbecoming farewell for the eight-time Olympic champion. We were over warm. "Then we saw a true legend, a true champion go out there and struggling like that (via The Guardian)".
They revealed they were made wait for 40 minutes in a cold call room ahead of the race.
This was going on in Bolt's mind, he did not conform to the expectations of his teammates. "It's really heart-wrenching. I couldn't believe it, I'm in shock, utter disbelief".
Two US soldiers killed, five wounded in internal incident
Two coalition service members died in non-combat related incidents in Iraq, one in January and another in February near Ramadi. USA troops have been helping support Iraqi forces battling the Islamic State group - "a truly evil enemy" in the words of Lt.
"It was ridiculous, man".
"But it was ridiculous".
"I drank like two bottles of water". He actually finished in third at the IAAF World Championships in London. I understand the magic of TV and that everything has to happen for viewers at home but we were held a little long before we went out. "It feels like second nature because we work well together. So it's just really insane".
Their win was however overshadowed by the injury to the fastest man ever on his final race.
"But a lot of pain is from disappointment from losing the race", added the Jamaican team doctor, Kevin Jones. "He has a passion for the sport, the fans love him, it's something you just can't walk away from that easy", said Gatlin. "We hope for the best for him".
However, Blake - who missed out on a medal in the 100m, failed to make the 200m final and was an injury doubt in the hours leading up to the race - was overtaken around the bench by Jaylen Bacon and Daniel Talbot.
