Olympic champions United States lead the way in women's 4x100m relay heats

Video Ricardo Makyn Jamaica's World 110 metres hurdles champion Omar McLeod with his gold medal

Usain Bolt pulled up with injury on the anchor leg of the 4x100 meters relay final at the World Athletics Championships on Saturday as the last race of his unparalleled career ended in high drama. He limped to the finish line in agony.

Jamaica started with Yohan Blake in third and Bolt as the final man, while the United States of America opted for Christian Coleman as their final runner, with Justin Gatlin taking the second leg.

They won in 37.47 seconds, with the U.S. taking silver at 0.05sec and Japan with a surprise bronze.

Australian hurdling great Sally Pearson could well add a second world title to her trophy cabinet and banish memories of two years of injury hell.

For Bolt, it was the worst possible way to bring the curtains down on a glittering career that has seen him grow into a global icon regarded as perhaps the greatest sprinter of all time.

Running several alternates on their team, the United States finished in 2 minutes, 59.23 seconds, .12 seconds ahead of Trinidad and Tobago.

His 4x400m team, running without him, dropped their baton during the heats, ending his hopes of an appearance in the final.

"We had so much self-belief, we didn't come here to just get on the podium, we came to win and that's what we did". "They had the game plan; one of them was going to sacrifice themselves. and the better man won on the day", Farah said. I'm sorry he got this injury.

Their career successes dictated that they should both leave with gold medals hanging around their neck but there were a number of party-poopers on hand to steal a portion of the limelight.

Defending champion Ashton Eaton retired this year after winning the last two Olympic and world titles.

The victory made it a night of double relay delight for the hosts as the women's team of Asha Philip, Desiree Henry, Dina Asher-Smith and Daryll Neita won silver in 42.12s.

Rio Olympic champions US team regained the women's 4x100m world crown which they last won at the 2011 Daegu worlds, as they sailed to victory in 41.82 seconds.

Bolt is retiring in August following the London World Championships.

In an eight-year period from 2008 to 2016, Bolt won 20 Olympic and world championship gold medals in the 21 events he entered.
