Bolt continued, refuting any suggestion he had not truly been injured at the World Championships.

He added: “I don’t usually release my medical report to the public but sadly I have sat and listened to people questioning if I was really injured.

“I have never been one to cheat my fans in anyway & my entire desire at the championship was run one last time for my fans.

“Thanks for the continued support my fans and I rest, heal and move onto the next chapter of my life #Love&LoveAlone.”
