"I think they really need to look into that and do something about it", said Forte. It was just insane and to see a true legend of the sport to go down like that, and we as Jamaicans and the world don't like to see that.

The Jamaican sprinter was his country's anchorman in the 4x100m final at the World Championships in London.

Usain Bolt has spoken for the first time since ending his career in World Championship agony after he was struck down with injury in his final appearance before retirement.

Stewards offered to help Bolt with a wheelchair but the sprint legend opted to limp away and applaud the crowd as he made his way around the London Stadium.

'We kept warming up and waiting, then warming up and waiting. "We hope for the best for him", he added.

"It was cold. Usain said to me "I don't like this", because we keep on warming up, and sitting, and warming up".

"I think we can maybe develop something like that, but you've still got to take it one year at a time, one race at a time, and put the work in and don't take anything for granted". These are my two events that I have dominated for years. "It's really heart-wrenching. I couldn't believe it, I'm in shock, utter disbelief". "Infinite love for my fans", Bolt captioned his post.

"No one wants to see Usain go out like that, with an injury".

One week after Bolt's bronze in the 100m, he is expected to headline the Jamaican relay team in the last scheduled race of his illustrious career.

He ends his career with 11 world and eight Olympic golds. I understand the magic of TV and that everything has to happen for viewers at home but we were held a little long before we went out.

But there was to be high drama as a visibly swearing Bolt pulled up in obvious pain, allowing the British quartet of Chijindu Ujah, Adam Gemili, Daniel Talbot and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake claim gold in 37.47 seconds, with the Justin Gatlin-led United States four taking silver at 0.05sec and Japan a surprise bronze (38.04).

Their time was also the third-fastest in 4x100 relay history.
