once, the fastest man of all time is left behind his rivals, as veteran sprinter Justin Gatlin takes gold.
Gatlin took the win in 9.92, with Coleman clocking 9.94.
“I’m sorry I couldn’t end it on a winning note, but I want to thank you for your support,” said the sprinter – who admitted his race had been “very poor”.
New world champion Gatlin, who served a doping ban between 2006 and 2010, was embraced by Bolt after he crossed the line.
He told the BBC: “The first thing he did was congratulate me and say that I didn’t deserve the boos. He is an inspiration.”
Gatlin was the last man to have beaten Bolt over 100m – by just a hundredth of a second in Rome in 2013.
Despondent Bolt fans still have a chance to see their hero take gold however – the 30-year-old is part of the 4x100m team.
