Usain Bolt won the men’s 200m in emphatic style tonight, earning his title as the world’s greatest ever sprinter.
The 25-year-old Jamaican powered home in 19.32 seconds, just a fraction outside the Olympic record of 19.30 – and he raised the roof on the Olympic Stadium by dropping to the track and celebrating by doing press-ups.
Yohan Blake and Warren Weir made it a Jamaica one-two-three.
