Usain Bolt: 'I could have run my last 200m race'

Usain Bolt celebrates winning the men's 100m on August 14, 2016
Jamaica's Usain Bolt says that he may have run his last 200m race after winning Olympic gold in the event for the third time.

Jamaica's Usain Bolt has said that he intends to only run in the 100m at next year's World Championships in London.

On Thursday night, Bolt stormed to his third 200m gold at the Olympic Games but after the race, he suggested that he may concentrate on the shorter distance in 2017.

The 29-year-old told BBC Sport: "I don't know. I said when I come to the championships in London next year it would be 100m and that's it.

"My coach has a way of trying to convince me, but personally I believe this is my last one."

Bolt will target a ninth Olympic gold medal when he runs for Jamaica in the men's 4 x 100m final.
