Bolt, who will end his athletics career after these championships is very enthusiastic about the 4x100m relay.

"I have talked to Julian Forte (100m semi-finalist) a little bit. I haven't really talked to the youngsters so we'll see when it comes to the baton changes. I'm always excited to run relays and we see what the guys are prepared and ready to do." Bolt added.

Men's 4x100m relay heats are scheduled for Saturday, August 12 at 10.55am Brittish Standard Time.
