Jamaica’s Usain Bolt booked a spot in the men’s 100-metre final at the IAAF World Championships in London today.

Bolt finished second in his semi-final heat with a time of 9.98 behind the USA’s Christian Coleman who clocked 9.97.

A slow start forced Bolt to play some catch up, but the world’s fastest man shifted into higher gear before easing off the throttle to cross the line just .01 seconds behind the American.

His compatriot Yohan Blake also booked a spot in the final with a comfortable 10.04 win in his heat.

Julian Forte failed to advance from his heat after clocking 10.13 to finish fourth.

The final takes place later today (August 5) at 3:45 pm local time.
