Jamaican team hold Usain Bolt's fate in their hands

The void Mo Farah leaves in track distance running is immeasurable

The IAAF World Championships are the coronation of Bolt's career, he planned to retire after the competition.

The 100 and 200m world record holder, who also anchored the Jamaican squad to a world record in the relay of 36.84sec at the 2012 London Olympics, will be back at the track for the final at 2050 GMT.

Though the relays remain as realistic medal prospects, but as we enter the final two days of the IAAF World Championships there is no escaping the reality that Jamaica's athletes in London have performed below expectations. "Am I really world champion?" Bolt still has one race to go. Bolt also has won 11 world championships. Ironically, 21 of the current fastest top 30 100 metre times comes from athletes who have tested positive with the other nine clean times coming from the legend that is Usain Bolt.

Yet while they promise they still have more to give, Philip insists the bumper home crowd made their job that little bit easier.

American sprinter, Justin Gatlin, has accused the media of sensationalizing his rivalry with 8-time Olympic champion, Usain Bolt.

Bolt complained about the starting blocks at the World Championships after his semi-final heat victory on Friday night.

The result means Bolt will bring down the curtain on a stunning career in the final later on Saturday as he goes for a record 15th medal at the Championships and what he hopes will be a 12th gold. If that doesn't surprise you, consider this, Bolt's fastest speed in a race is 27.79 miles per hour.

Instead of focusing on the 400m, Bolt wanted his second race to be the 100m.

The men's 4x400m relay qualifying heats include a British quartet led by Martyn Rooney - who was recently among the team retrospectively awarded bronze at the 2008 Olympics.

But it's more than his talent that deserves a thumbs up. He has been a role model to the sport and a national hero in his country for his success without any taints of doping.

Coe, an Olympic gold medal victor as a middle distance runner, has every right to make that call. His latest ranking puts him ahead of any baseball player, and just behind golfer Jordan Spieth and basketball player Derrick Rose.

Bolt is also known to love a great party.

Gatlin and the United States team also including another convicted doping cheat, Mike Rodgers, and Jaylen Bacon were booed when introduced although the jeering was less than for the individual 100m event. Maybe it was growing up in such a small community, maybe it's his attitude on life or maybe it's the lifestyle of the community he grew up in, where people live to be over 100 and walk everywhere, sometimes for miles.

"They've been outstanding so far, and continue to surprise me and give me energy", Bolt said.

However, if you're not one of the Trump family, going weak at the knees when Putin takes his shirt off, it's easy to feel pleased about the stony faced Russian regime being embarrassed by their blanket ban.

We see those manners in him and we like it!
