World Championship: No regret losing crown to Gatling- Bolt

Bolt admitted he was disappointed not to say farewell with victory – he still has the 4x100m relay to race before his retirement – but said he could have done no more. “No regrets. I came out and did my best, I was always to end no matter what happened – win, lose or draw I was always going to walk away,” Bolt said. Bayern Munich twice came from behind before beating Borussia Dortmund 5-4 on penalties to win the German Super Cup. Christian Pulisic gave the hosts the lead at Signal Iduna Park before Poland striker Robert Lewandowski equalised. Dortmund regained the lead through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Lukasz Piszczek’s late own goal making it 2-2 and forcing penalties. Bayern won 5-4 after their secondchoice goalkeeper Sven Ulreich saved two spot kicks in the shootout.

It is the seventh time Bayern have won the Super Cup, the traditional curtain-raiser to the Bundesliga season between the champions and the German Cup winners, having also beaten Dortmund last year. Bayern start the defence of their title on 18 August at home to Bayer Leverkusen, while Dortmund go to Wolfsburg a day later. Usain Bolt had no regrets after his farewell to the 100m ended in a World Championship fi nal defeat to old rival Justin Gatlin. Th e Jamaican great had to settle for third inside London’s Olympic Stadium, where a chorus of boos greeted Gatlin’s win ahead of American counterpart Christian Coleman because of his previous doping violations.

It’s time to go. “It doesn’t change anything. I lost the race to a great competitor, I came third to a young kid coming up – he has a great talent and a great future ahead of him.”
