The Jamaican had a athletics championship to forget as it never panned out as he wanted.
The eight-time-Olympic gold medalist won bronze in the 100m before pulling a hamstring in the final of the 4x100m relay, hence, could not finish the very last race of his glamorous career.
Usain Bolt said he was “saying goodbye to everything” and “almost cried” as his successful career came to a close at the World Championships in London.
“It’s really sad that I have to walk away now,” said the Jamaican, who completed a lap of honour of London Stadium on Sunday’s closing night.
“I was saying goodbye to the fans and saying goodbye to my events also.”
Bolt, 30, has insisted he won’t be making a comeback, “I’ve seen too many people retire and come back just to make it worse or to shame themselves.
“I won’t be one of those people.” Bolt concluded.
