Gatlin beats Bolt in 100m final

Justin Gatlin stunned the world to claim the 100m World Championship title and leave Usain Bolt trailing in third place in his final 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, that will sit alongside his 2011 disqualification in Daegu rather than the jaw-dropping 9.58 world record of his 2009 success.

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 to go with his 2004 Olympic title.
