LONDON (AP) — The Latest from the track world championships (all times local):

9:48 p.m.

Usain Bolt had his farewell party spoiled when Justin Gatlin beat him in the 100 meters at the world championships.

In a tight finish, Bolt was punished for his slow start and Gatlin held him off at the line in 9.92 seconds. American sprinter Christian Coleman took silver in 9.94 seconds and Bolt took bronze in 9.95.

Because of his doping past, Gatlin was booed in London even after the race.
