Usain Bolt was on Saturday beaten in the 100m final at the ongoing 16th IAAF World Championships at the London Stadium, in a race which served as his valedictory individual sprint race.
The man who achieved the feat happens to be American Justin Gatlin as the ex-drug offender finished in a time of 9.92secs.
Interestingly, Bolt also lost the silver medal to another American, Christian Coleman who finished in a time of 9.94secs.
The Jamaican whose final appearance is on August 12 in the men’s 4x100m relay settled for the bronze in a time of 9.95secs.
The eight-time Olympic gold medallist had started the day on an impressive note in the heat.
He won the Heat 6 in a time of 10.07secs which he described as “the worst ever” in his career.
Also, in the semi-final, Bolt was beaten by Coleman for the first time in four years, but finished in a time of 9.98 seconds, before his eventual fall in the final to old-time rival, Gatlin.
Bolt after the race took time to acknowledge the crowd as he prepares to hang up his spike shoes in a matter of days.
“This was wonderful. I knew they would come out and support me. I’m just sad I couldn’t come out and win.
“My start killed me. Normally I get better through the rounds but it didn’t come together. The fact I didn’t get it is why I lost.
“The support has been outstanding. They have stood behind me and pushed me and I really appreciate that,” Bolt told BBC Sport.
