Gatlin stuns Bolt to win world title
Justin Gatlin ruined Usain Bolt’s farewell party when the 35-year-old American won the world 100 meters title on Saturday – sparking a chorus of boos from a crowd unhappy with his doping past.

As so often before, Jamaican Bolt made a terrible start but this time he could not make it up as Christian Coleman – the 21-year-old American who beat him in the semi-finals – looked set for victory.

But the former world and Olympic champion Gatlin – who stumbled at the death to lose the 2015 world final to Bolt – timed his surge and dip to perfection to win in 9.92 seconds.

Coleman took silver in 9.94 with Bolt third in 9.95.
