The three former Olympians who went mad for Great Britain’s Mo Farah in the 10,000 metres on Friday have had yet another eventful evening.
Denise Lewis, Colin Jackson and Michael Johnson, who were providing punditry for the BBC in the Olympic stadium, cheered home “The Big Man” Usain Bolt as he completed the 100 metres.
Bolt, the 25-year-old from Jamaican, crossed the line first in 9.63 seconds, with his countryman Yohan Blake in silver and American Justin Gatlin in bronze.
Blake equalled his personal best of 9.75, with Gatlin setting a new personal best of 9.79. Seven of the eight finalists ran under 10 seconds in what was the fastest Olympic 100m final ever.
