What a moment! :mrgreen:

Thoughts go out to Bolt though. Didn't deserve to go out like that.

Perfect run. Did they say it was 3rd fastest of all time?

Even more impressive as they have been saying all week that the track has been very slow.

Amazing from the men to win gold.

Obviously a massive shame for Bolt to bow out in that way. Doubt we'll ever see someone quite as incredible as him again.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Didn't realise that Brendon Foster has retired now from commentary after the world championships. That's a shame.

Yeah, I think this was mentioned on the athletics last night (unless I'm misremembering). Whilst it might be good to not have to build a new barely used athletics stadium, it's a ridiculous proposal as the athletics are the major part of these events and what most people want to see. Why would you want to send them all away to London?
