Saturday marks the end of the Usain Bolt's career.
The United States, featuring 100m champion Justin Gatlin, will provide the biggest danger in their aim to win the event for a first time in ten years.
After a short while, though, he rose gingerly to his feet and limped across the line to huge cheers from the 56,000 crowd. Ironically, 21 of the current fastest top 30 100 metre times comes from athletes who have tested positive with the other nine clean times coming from the legend that is Usain Bolt.
The Jamaican bowed from his 100-metre career during the week falling to shock third place behind Justin Gatlin and Christian Coleman. Win or lose, Saturday's race will be his last before he hangs up his spikes.
Acknowledging Bolt's greatness, Gatlin kneeled and bowed to his longtime adversary moments after the race.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola makes Sergio Busquets enquiry
Liverpool held on to fourth place previous year and will need to make the most of Champions League football while they have it. Perhaps we've got to ensure that all our players give their all and hope that City are off-colour, but it can happen that way.
The 100 and 200m world record holder, who also anchored the Jamaican squad to a world record in the relay of 36.84sec at the 2012 London Olympics, will be back at the track for the final at 2050 GMT.
Defending women's 4x400m champions, Jamaica, boasts three finalists in the 400m and will line up in heat two 11:32 a.m. (5:32 a.m.) as the favourites, while the male 4x400m team, which won silver at last year's Olympics, enter heat one at 11:50 a.m. (5:50 a.m.).
"It felt good", said Rodgers.
The eight-time Olympic gold medalist finished third in a photo finish to runner-up Christian Coleman, and Gatlin on August 5 at London Stadium, site of the 2012 Olympic Games. Indeed, his qualification for the final of the 100m race was considered as enough milestone for him. We need to believe everything we see when we watch sport is clean and real, otherwise what is the point.
Bolt is still the greatest sprinter in history and one of the most dominant athletes ever, but he has finally been humbled. "It is just one of those things, thank you to London for all your love and appreciation", said Bolt, who was treated by the capacity crowd and the organizers as a victor, receiving undimished cheers and applause from the adoring spectators and doing the lap of honor as if he had won.
Coutinho requests transfer from Liverpool?
The statement issued by FSG read: "We wish to offer clarity as regards our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho ". In a statement yesterday, the club's owners said its "definitive stance" was that "no offers will be considered".
The Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics at the University of Oslo did a scientific analysis of that run and estimated that Bolt could have finished with a time of 9.55 seconds if he hadn't slowed down to celebrate.
That said, it's noteworthy that resounding jeers greeted Gatlin when he was introduced for this race. "I'll call it lessons, lessons, lessons".
"I know you have to have the black hat and the white hat, but guys, c'mon", he said.
Unlike any other superstar sprinter, unlike Carl Lewis or Michael Johnson, after winning a race, the drama has just begun for Bolt as he stops for every selfie, holding his now famous and iconic pose for every photographer. I came out here and did my best.
