( CNN) Usain Bolt’s farewell appearance at “the worlds” championships ended in painful and disastrous fashion as he pulled up injured on the final leg of the men’s 4x100m relay Saturday.

Bolt took the baton for Jamaica in third place but within a few strides he had fallen to the ground, clutching his left leg, as host Britain procured a shock amber ahead of a United States team containing Justin Gatlin.
