"It's great, a fourth win over 200m and it means a lot to me. I'm happy to be a 10-time World Championships gold medallist, especially when people have been saying I would lose. For me I knew I had the utmost confidence. As long as my coach is confident I'm super confident. There was never a doubt that I would win this one. I'm number one. " said Bolt after the race.
