WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2017: USAIN BOLT DETHRONED BY JUSTIN GATLIN IN 100M FINAL


Justin Gatlin won his second world 100m title 12 years after his first as he beats eight-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt.

For the American Gatlin, it was his second world 100m title, 12 years after his first to ruin 12-time Olympic champion Bolt's final individual race.

Bolt, who retires after next week's 4x100m relay, came third behind American Gatlin, who clocked 9.92 seconds, and Christian Coleman (9.94).

Bolt's 9.95 seconds equalled his best effort of 2017 but he always trailed.

Gatlin -was banned twice for doping he was booed before the race and celebrated wildly, holding his hands to his ears.
