Bolt false starts and gets eliminated

Daegu, South Korea:

Usain Bolt again did the unbelievable when it mattered most in the 100 meters.

This time, no gold medal or world record, but a false start and straight elimination from the world championships in a race he regally reigned for three years.

In a stunning few seconds, Bolt's showboating turned into real-life despair when he jumped the gun and was led away from the track before compatriot Yohan Blake won gold ahead of Walter Dix.

NDTV input: Cricketer Chirs Gayle extended his support to fellow Jamaican Usain Bolt, on Twitter. "Stay strong my brother Usain Bolt...Everything happen for a reason!! God Bless...still the Boss!!" he wrote.
