Rio 2016: Triple-triple for Bolt as Jamaica claim relay gold


Jamaica claimed a third successive Olympic gold in the men's 4x100 metre relay to ensure Usain Bolt achieved his goal of completing a sensational 'triple-triple'.

Firmly established as the greatest sprinter of all time, Bolt will leave Rio 2016 - which he insists is his final Olympics - having once again pulled off a clean sweep in the sprint events.

After winning 100m and 200m gold earlier in the Games, Bolt anchored Jamaica's relay team to glory on Friday, a time of 37.27 seconds enough to beat surprise package Japan and the United States into silver and bronze respectively.
