In a mad rush for gold, Jamaica's men's 4x200m and women's 4x100m teams won gold at the IAAF World Relays in The Bahamas.

Warren Weir led the team of Nickel Ashmeade, Jason Livermore and Rasheed Dwyer to a time of 1:20.97 ahead of France 1:21.49 and Germany, 1:22.65 as Usain Bolt watched from the warm-up track.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce was also missing for the women's 4x100m team but Veronica Campbell-Brown, Schillonie Calvert, Kerron Stewart and Simone Facey got the job done for the Jamaicans who won in a world leading 42.14 after some powerful running all around.

The USA was second in 42.32 with Great Britain and Northern Ireland third in 42.84.
