Usain Bolt’s career did not end as planned.
After being upset in the 100m at the IAAF track and field championships in London earlier this month, the final race of the Jamaican legend’s career was the 4x100m relay.
Bolt took the baton for the final leg when he pulled up lame and fell to the ground in a heap of pain.
Now we know exactly what happened to Bolt.
According to a photo that was shared on Bolt’s social media account and later deleted, he suffered a torn hamstring in his final race.
It’s an unfortunate end to an incredible career.
Despite the disappointing finish to his career, Bolt will be remembered as one of the best sprinters in history, holding world records in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m.
Bolt also has 23 gold medals, including eight from the Olympics, 5 silvers and one bronze throughout his decorated career.
