Bolt storms to 100m gold
London - Jamaica's Usain Bolt sealed the legendary status he so craves after sprinting to a convincing victory in the men's Olympic 100m to retain his title on Sunday.
The 25-year-old world record holder turned on the after-burners at 60m to clock an Olympic record of 9.63sec, the second fastest time in history.

American 2004 Olympic gold medallist Justin Gatlin completed his remarkable comeback from a four-year doping ban by taking the bronze medal in a personal best of 9.79sec.
