Breaking:Justin Gatlin Beats Usain Bolt To Claim 100M Final Gold

Justin Gatlin gatecrashed Usain Bolt’s finale to silence and shock the London Stadium and claim the 100 metres World Championship title.

The controversial American – booed throughout after his previous doping bans – won a highly-charged race in 9.92 seconds as Bolt could only come third on Saturday.

Christian Coleman completed an American one-two in 9.94 secs, with Jamaican Bolt crossing the line in 9.95.

Speaking after his shock defeat, bronze medallist Bolt told the BBC: “It was rough. But I came out and I did my best.”

Despite his disappointment, the Jamaican added his appreciation for the 66,000-capacity crowd at the London Stadium, however.

He said: “Thanks for your support. I really appreciate it.”
