Usain Bolt has confirmed he will run the 100m and 4x100m relay at the World Championships in London in August, his final event before retiring.

Bolt, an eight-time Olympic gold medallist and an icon of world sport, has led one of the most illustrious careers in the history of athletics.

“My aim is to win in London. I want to retire on a winning note,” the Jamaican 30-year-old said on Wednesday. The World Championships take place from 4-13 August.

The men’s 100m final is due to place on Saturday, 5 August, while the men’s 4x100m relay race – which will mark the end of Bolt’s career – takes place on the following Saturday.

Bolt has won the 100m, 200m and 4x100m gold at the past three Olympic Games – Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016.

However, his unprecedented ‘triple triple’ of nine gold medals was downgraded to eight 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. (BBC Sport)
