Great Britain’s men’s 4×100 metres relay team claimed a stunning gold medal amid chaotic scenes at the World Championships in London as Usain Bolt’s glorious career ended in injury and agony.

The British quartet of CJ Ujah, Adam Gemili, Danny Talbot and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake pipped the United States to gold in a world-leading 37.47 seconds, but only after Bolt had pulled up on his anchor leg and collapsed to the track.

The USA took silver in 37.52secs and Japan the bronze.
