Breaking News: Justin Gatlin Stuns Usain Bolt, Wins 100m Final In World Championship

Justin Gatlin stunned the world to claim the 100m World Championship title and leave Usain Bolt trailing in third place in his final 100m individual race before retirement.

Despite a low-key season, Bolt was expected to claim a fourth 100m World Championship title but instead was left with a bronze medal, which will sit alongside the disappointment of his 2011 disqualification in Daegu.

Instead, it was the controversial Gatlin, twice banned for doping offences, who claimed a second World Championship title, 12 years after his only other 100m World Championship gold in Helsinki.

Gatlin took advantage of a below-par Bolt to come home in a season-best time of 9.92secs with the Jamaican sprint legend trailing Christian Coleman (9.94) in third place, despite equalling his best time of the year.
