Great Britain win shock 4x100m gold as Usain Bolt pulls up injured

More booing too for 100m gold medal victor Justin Gatlin on his entry, who ran the second leg with the American team along with Mike Rodgers, Jaylen Bacon and Christian Coleman, who won the individual gold.

There are also gold medals to be won in the women's high jump and the men's javelin.

Kevin Mayer of France extended his lead in the decathlon after the pole vault, clearing 5.10 meters in the eighth of 10 events at the world championships.

"From 2008 on, Usain Bolt has done awesome things and tonight is not going to define who he is".

The U.S. 4x400-meter relay team set the fastest time of the year to qualify for Sunday's final at the world championships, beating Trinidad and Tobago and Belgium.

Yohan Blake checks on Usain Bolt after Bolt's dramatic injury in the world championships relay final.

Five years after winning the 100-meter hurdles at the London Games, Pearson won the world title in 12.59 seconds.

Instead, Britain upset the United States to take gold in 37.47 seconds.

Guardiola defends Manchester City's big spending
Home form let down United last season with their 10 home draws the highest in the league and the team had more wins away than at Old Trafford .

The top three from each of the two heats and next two fastest finishers from the remaining qualify for the final round.

Usain Bolt will take part in the final of 4 X 100 metres relay which will be the closing act of the night at 21.50 local time or 02.20 AM (August 13, Sunday morning).

Britain took silver in 42.12 and two-time defending champion Jamaica earned bronze in 42.19.

"To run it with Danny Talbot after such disappointment in London 2012, it is so special to come back", said Gemili, who was not selected for the individual races and missed an Olympic 200m bronze by three thousandths of a second a year ago.

Rohler, from Germany, made a 88.26m throw in his second attempt and finished fourth while Beijing worlds victor Yego was eliminated after the first three rounds.

Meanwhile, Bolt and his fellow Jamaicans ran the relay in 39.95 seconds, with Bolt grabbing the baton and passing his competitors.

Gatlin, who beat Coleman and Bolt to 100m 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.

Few things can compare to the phenomenon of watching Bolt make futile the efforts of the other runners.
