Usain Bolt is all set for the final appearance at major championships in London on Saturday as Jamaica qualified for the men’s 4x100m relay final at the World Championships.
The eight-time Olympic champion anchored the squad to victory in the second heat.
Jamaica finished in 37.95 seconds – slower than Great Britain and the USA from the first heat – but will be expected to challenge for the podium in tonight’s final – Bolt’s last race of his career.

Speaking about his final race of the career, Bolt said, “For me it’s hard to be sad because of the energy I am getting from the crowd, I just feel happy and blessed.
“It’s been brilliant, the energy in the stadium is outstanding. I knew it was going to be like this, I appreciate you guys coming out and supporting not just me but the whole World Championships.”
Coming to the big final then, Jamaica won gold in Rio last summer and it’s difficult not to back Bolt to bow out on a high in London this time around.
Bolt will run for the final time on 13th August at 2:20 AM IST.
