Mo Farah prepares for final race in 5000m at World Athletics Championships

Ethiopia's Muktar Edris finds the answer to beating Mo Farah

Mo Farah bows out of track athletics with 5000m silver at World Championships

Though not in the manner he would have planned or thought about, Usain Bolt says final goodbye to Team Jamaica and extends love for fans after seeing curtains being drawn to his illustrious track & field career in a rather disheartening manner.

Talbot added: "2012 didn't go our way and we have been working hard since then". To be holding us so long, it was atrocious.

And team-mate Yohan Blake, who ran the third leg, slammed competition organisers for allowing the women's high jump medal presentation to over-run and allow the runners on track to cool down.

Bolt's massively gutting end to his career came days after he finished third in his final 100m race.

Bolt, who finished third in the individual 100m behind victor Justin Gatlin and Christian Coleman, said: "I enjoy relays more than anything".

With Jamaica pulled up Great Britain ran home in a victory as surprising as Jamaica's last place, ahead of the US in silver and Japan bronze.

Bolt was his long-time rival and he lost five successive Olympic and World Championship races to him. He's a performer and I think we can all appreciate it.

"The 10k did take a lot out of me and I'm a little beaten up, but I'm OK", Farah said.

He edged out American Paul Chelimo in a desperate dash for the line, the last mile of a hitherto slow run race run in just under four minutes.

Bolt hit the deck with severe cramp in his hamstring halfway into the last leg of the 4x100m relay final - which Great Britain went on to win for their second gold of the World Championships. "I lost all my sweat and body heat", Gatlin said. Usain Bolt is a true inspirational athlete that helped redefine athletics and running at a time and he will have had a profound impact upon many people who will look at him as a true role model.

Edris, a former world junior champion, timed his last lap burst to perfection to win in 13 minutes 32.79 seconds, copying Farah's famous Mobot gesture as he crossed the line.

On an August night in 2008, Usain Bolt announced his arrival.
