The Jamaican superstar uses a barrel roll to break his fall.

This race only adds to Usain Bolts disappointing performance in the world championships, after already losing his world champion title in the 100m to Justin Gatlin, who has been banned twice from competing because of taking drugs. Usain was really cold. '14 none. '15, when I was probably at the sharpest and the fastest I've even been in my life, race against Usain, and premium people are like, man, you have a great shot at beating him.

"It was cold and there was 40 minutes and two medal presentations before our run".

The look of anguish on his face says it all.

But after tonight's triumph, he said: "2012 didn't go our way and we have been working hard since then". Yohan Blake was missing from the team, but Bolt magic proved enough for Jamaica.

"It was ridiculous. We were there waiting, and we were really trying to stay warm, but it was really ridiculous, we waited a really long time", McLeod said, via Jamaica-Gleaner.

Despite announcing his imminent retirement, the relay may not be the final time Bolt runs on the track should he decide to return to the Nitro Athletics meeting he helped establish in Australia next year. "Now he's really deserved time away and to not have to deal with the gruelling training".

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

Having to make up lots of ground on the anchor leg, Bolt suddenly screamed, stumbled and somersaulted as he came down, his golden farewell shattered by the first injury he has experienced at a major competition.

Momentum saw him do a forward roll but he didn't last long on his feet before collapsing on the track. They were brought to the wheelchair but they refused to sit on it. Bolt insisted on pushing them out but he could not do it.

The official diagnosis afterwards was a cramp in his hamstring. "We hope for the best for him".

Bolt was the final leg for his team on this race.

Hosts Great Britain took the gold medal with a time of 37.47 seconds, and Usain Bolt's Jamaica team ended up not placing after his injury.
