Usain Bolt rival Andre de Grasse suffers hamstring tear

Usain Bolt rival Andre de Grasse suffers hamstring tear

"That's what I keep reading and that's what my team keep telling me, I'm going to have to prove myself once more", Bolt said.

It would be a fearless person to bet against the 30-year-old Jamaican, no matter how sluggish, relatively speaking, his season has been so far.

"These things happen. It's the sport and it's good for track and field and I think he would agree with me if I say we need this to happen to see track and field go from where it is to great heights", he said, adding: "Yes, he did congratulate me!" We have experienced persons like Donald Quarrie around us and other athletes who are more experienced, but there is nothing like having a specialist in the area, for example, a sports psychologist, and I am sure the JAAA will be looking to improve the resources around the athletes as they have been doing. I've still not beaten him - but I'd love to.

Coached by "Auntie" Ans Botha, aged 74, Van Niekerk remains humble and in awe of what Bolt has done for athletics.

De Grasse, who was a PB of 9.91, would have been one of Bolt's main rivals for the gold medal.

And fittingly, parents Wellesley and Jennifer Bolt presented their iconic son with his final pair of track and field running shoes on Tuesday here.

"The seven people who are going to be in that race with me, they're the biggest challengers", he said.

At the age of 30, one knows that Bolt is not the youngest man in the sport.

Sebastian Coe's stubborn insistence on the retention of a permanent running track at the London Olympic stadium gets its ultimate validation over the next two weeks when the venue hosts the World Athletics Championships.

The eight-time Olympic champion sprinter is an avid Manchester United fan and has joked that manager Jose Mourinho is keeping him sweating on a dream move to Old Trafford.

Coleman also qualified to run in the championships in the 200 metres, but because of his long collegiate season he chose to focus on the 100 and the 4x100 metres relay. We're going to go in the right direction and I'm happy about that situation. After pulling away - much later than expected - Bolt stared down De Grasse and good-naturedly shook his finger at the youngster for pushing him so hard.

"Everyone knows I'm always talking about [playing] football, I'm waiting on a call from Mourinho", Bolt said.

David Rudisha will not be here, which is a disappointment.

"I didn't know I would be 100m world record holder growing up, I had no idea".

Farah would be pleased Salazar is not here for it unburdens him slightly of addressing queries that have been raised of his performances because of questions that persist about Salazar and drugs.

The renowned awards under his belt include Laureus Sportsman of the year award in 2017, Milliyet award for best world athlete of the year in 2010, BBC overseas sports personality of the year in 2008, 2009, 2012, Best track and field athlete ESPY award 2010, Best worldwide athlete ESPY award 2009, 2013, 2017, among others. She is fit and fast again.

Men's 10,000m final: Mo Farah, Patrick Tiernan - 6.20am.
