Jamaica sprint legend is hanging up his boots – and will be having his final ever race of illustrious career in London
USAIN BOLT will call time on his glittering career in London.
The Jamaica sprint legend, 30, will run in the 100m and the 4X100m at the World Athletics Championships at Stratford’s Olympic Stadium in August.
When is Usain Bolt’s last race?
Should he, ahem, get past the heats and reach the final of the 100m – the last time we will ever see Bolt run a solo race will be at 9.45pm on Saturday, August 5.
Bolt will also race as part of the Jamaica team in the 4x100m relay squad.
The 4 X 100m takes place on Saturday, 12 August at 9.50pm.
What TV channel is the event on?
The World Athletics Championships will be broadcast live on BBC.
BBC 1, BBC 2 and online will provide full coverage of the event.
How many Olympic gold medals has Bolt won?
Bolt is an eight-time Olympic gold medallist. He has won the 100m, 200m and 4x100m gold at the past three Olympic Games – Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016.
His ‘triple triple’ of nine gold medals was downgraded to eight, however, after Jamaican team-mate Nesta Carter, who was part of the quartet that won the 4x100m in Beijing, tested positive for a banned substance.
Carter has appealed against the decision.
When are the World Athletics Championships on?
The World Athletics Championships run from Friday August 4 until Sunday August 13.
