"Earlier this week in practice, I suffered a hamstring tear that has forced me to withdraw from the World Championships", De Grasse said on his Facebook page.

Bolt was stripped of one of his own Olympic golds after Jamaican relay teammate Nesta Carter tested positive for a banned substance at the Beijing games in 2008, a decision Carter has appealed. "It's going in the right direction so hopefully it will continue in that direction".

"Yes, I've reached heights that no-one else has in the 400 but at the same time I'm going to go out there and build a total new image of who I am and what I believe in". It's time to go.

Asked who might fill his shoes after he retires, Bolt made what appeared to be a pointed reference to De Grasse when he responded: "I'm not going down that road".

"I love competing and that's what makes me go faster". He ran a time of 9.69 seconds to win in Stockholm, although it was heavily wind assisted, and was heavily tipped by many as the man to push Bolt in the 100m when the championships get under way tomorrow. "They are preparing to take on the world, and the focus should be on them".

McMillan compared it to removing Donovan Bailey or Bruny Surin from the relay team that won gold at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.

Breastfeeding can boost economies and save children's lives
During breastfeeding, antibodies and other germ-fighting factors pass from a mother to her baby and strengthen the immune system. By six months, only 34% of UK babies are receiving any breast milk, compared with 49% in the United States and 71% in Norway.

The women's 100m hurdles also looks like a hugely competitive event with the US' Kendra Harrison, who broke the world record in the same stadium previous year after failing to qualify for the Rio Olympics, seeking the global title her talent deserves. I don't want to see them broken. "That was my main dream growing up - I always wanted to be Olympic 200m champion".

"I don't think you can't really use the word "disappointed", he said of not getting to race against the towering Jamaican. But I don't blame him at all.

"I knew it would provide for myself and my family".

"I didn't know I would be 100m world record holder growing up, I had no idea". For those of you who don't know, just like Usain Bolt, Virat Kohli too is signed by the sports brand Puma.

"I mean, what he has achieved for track and field alone these last few years has been massive".

Celebrating the incredible track & field career of Usain Bolt, the specially organised press conference showcased some of the key moments in his life that contributed to his legacy and commemorated his professional journey. It's on its way back up now.
