Usain Bolt, Mo Farah sparkle at London Diamond meet

Six-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt, fresh from his win in the 100m on Friday, anchored the Jamaica 4x100m relay team to victory in a meeting record of 37.75sec. Farah hardly broke sweat as he thrilled the 60,000 crowd by bursting away from his rivals with over a lap to go and winning in a personal best time of seven minutes 36.85 seconds.

London: Mo Farah proved he is in perfect shape in both mind and body to make a successful defence of his world title after savouring more glory at London's Olympic Stadium on Saturday.

The British distance runner returned to the scene of his 5,000 metres and 10,000m Olympic gold-medal winning double triumph to win the 3,000m at the Diamond League meeting which was taking place to mark the anniversary of the 2012 Games.

It set the 30-year-old, who also holds the world and European titles at 5,000m, up nicely for next month's world championships in Moscow.
