Sprint legend Usain Bolt completed an unprecedented Olympic ‘triple triple’ as Britain closed in on their record medal haul on day 14 at Rio 2016.

Bolt helped Jamaica land 4x100m relay gold, having already won the 100m and 200m individual titles, to match his feats at Beijing 2008 and London 2012.

GB took bronze in the women’s 4x100m relay medal, while Lutalo Muhammad won silver in the men’s taekwondo -80kg.

They have 60 medals, five short of the 65 won in London, with two days left.

Bolt, 29, has said the Rio Games will be his final Olympics as he plans to retire from the sport after the 2017 World Championships.

He signs off having won all nine Olympic finals in which he has appeared.

Bolt has claimed gold in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016.

“There you go, I’m the greatest,” he said afterwards.
