Bolt breaks down in tears following shocking World Championships 100M final loss

A report coming out of the Jamaican camp at the current World Athletics Championships now taking place in London states that Usain Bolt was left devastated and broke down in tears after his shocking third place finish in the final of the men's 100M, where he was finally dethroned by 2004 Olympic Champion, American Justin Gatlin. Bolt, who once reigned supreme over the 100M when he broke the World Record at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and subsequently went on to win every major sprint title since with the exception of his surprising false start debacle in the 100M final in Daegu six years ago where he fell victim to the dreaded "curse of the cover," was unable to capture a fourth 100 World title to add his enviable sporting resume, as he declined to be interviewed by this reporter.

Having to resort to alternative sources to find out what happened to one of the most dominant and legendary athletes in history, this reporter contacted the sprinting legend's coach Glen Mills to get the real story about what happened to the Jamaican and world renowned Track Star. This is what Mills had to say:

"He didn't execute well. Normally he is fast off the blocks. Or if he gets a bad start he is usually able to come back due to his exceptional speed, strength and height. But apparently this race was too much for him and he allowed himself to be overwhelmed by the occasion. He was telling me minutes before the race how nervous he was. This is not like the Bolt that I know. He is normally calm and collected. I tried my utmost to console him after the race but he was inconsolable."

Mills continued:

"He was saying: "de blood claat Yankees beat me man. Dem blood claat drug cheat Yankees." I think it was an obvious reference to Gatlin. Although I am not too sure if Christian Coleman has ever tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs. It was obviously not quite the send-off he wanted but I told him that he should just forget about this performance and concentrate on the 200M which is his better race. He was emphatic that he will redeem himself in the 200M."

He concluded:

"But I must congratulate Gatlin though on his gesture of paying homage to Usain by genuflecting to him after beating him. Although frankly speaking I am not quite sure if he was being genuine or if it was done in mockery."

There's no way this could be true. Whatever you say, frank.
