Usain Bolt blazed to 19.32 seconds to lead a clean sweep for Jamaica in the men’s 200m final.



This means Bolt has claimed the historic double at the London 2012 Olympics in consecutive games.



Bolt blasted from the blocks and was first off the curve.



He then powered home to finish.



Fellow Jamaicans Yohan Blake (19.44) was second and Warren Weir third in 19.84.



It was a season best for Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake and a personal best for Warren Weir.



This has pushed Jamaica’s medal tally to nine.



This is the seventh time the 200m is being swept by one country in the Olympics.



The first six were all by the United States.
