One of the many persons who reacted with disbelief after Usain Bolt captured the bronze medal in yesterday's 100m final in London.
A section of the massive crowd gathered in Half-Way Tree, St Andrew, yesterday to view the final of the men's 100m at the IAAF World Championship in London yesterday.

In seconds, shouts of jubilation in Half-Way Tree Square turned to anguish as defeat soaked into the psyche of those who turned out to witness Usain Bolt's last individual race yesterday.

The sprint legend, after a slow start, fought his way back to a bronze medal, leaving a bittersweet taste in the mouths of all who turned out to honour the greatest sprint legend of all time.
