London, Aug 12 : Sprint legend Usain Bolt celebrated by doing his "Mobot" move after his Jamaican team set a new world record in the 4x100 m relay in the London Olympics 2012.
The star sprinter, who grabbed his third gold, performed Mo Farah's trademark salute by arching his hands on top of his head in an M shape, after the double gold winner crossed the finish line.
The Jamaican team of Bolt, Yohan Blake, Nesta Carter and Michael Frater finished in a time of 36.84.
According to The Telegraph, Bolt received the baton with Jamaica already in the lead and sprinted home to smash the previous record of 37.04 secs and Olympic record of 37.10 secs.
The same Jamaican quartet had also set the previous world record at the world championships in Daegu last year.
The result confirmed Jamaica''s dominance in sprinting events, while the US, who came second, had also performed strongly, and their time of 37.04 secs was a national record, the paper said.
Canada finished third but the team was disqualified after a sprinter from their team ran outside of his lane, leaving the athletes in tears, and Trinidad and Tobago were awarded the bronze with their time of 38.12 secs, the paper added. (ANI)
