While the Jamaican lay prone, it was Britain who crossed the line first in a world-leading time of 37.47 seconds, the United States - booed upon entry with 100m champion Justin Gatlin on the second leg - second with 37.52secs and Japan taking the bronze.

An apparent leg injury ended Usain Bolt's 4x100 meter relay final early on Saturday.

The 4x100m relay witnessed the disaster, as Bolt crumpled on the race track clutching his leg in visible pain and tears, reports CNN.

Bolt's team mates complained that a 45-minute wait in the call room before the race had hampered their preparations. "I think we need to do a better job of instructing all of what has been going on".

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

"It's been brilliant. The energy in the stadium is outstanding", Bolt said, hailing the deafening support in the packed-out London Stadium "not just for me but the whole championships". "40 minutes and two medal presentations before our run". We've just got to keep pushing each other. The last three weeks have been hard for him, you know. But it was ridiculous. To be holding us so long, it was atrocious.

"I think the public have probably heard enough about us being the best generation of sprinting, with no results".

The Great Britain quartet ended up beating the U.S. in a dramatic race while Bolt shrugged aside organisers who brought on a wheelchair for him and was able to limp across the line.

"He didn't tell us exactly what happened but from what I saw, it looked like a strain or a cramp of some sort", Forte said.

Bolt ends his career with 11 world and eight Olympic golds. It is also worth mentioning that Saturday's outing was slated to serve as the last race of his career.

Both Great Britain's men's and women's 4x100m teams safely made it through to their finals, finishing second in their heats.

"Bolt is an electrifying character who has run sizzling times, mind-blowing times and throughout the years he has always kept it classy".

The relay race will be the final event of the evening's proceedings at the penultimate day of the Athletics World Championship.
