Usain Bolt clocked a time of 10.03 seconds in his last 100 meters race on home soil in Jamaica ahead of his retirement in August. The 30-year old produced a spectacle for a buzzing crowd of 30,000 fans in a race termed as "Salute to a Legend" who flocked to see the speedster in action.

Usain Bolt is all set to bid farewell to his international running career following the London World Championships commencing on 5th August later this year. On Saturday, the Jamaican snatched an emotional victory in front of his devoted fans at the National Stadium in Jamaica, the same place where he started his career in 2002.

Although the London Olympic gold-medalist finished well past his record time it was enough to defeat his compatriot Javaughn Minzie convincingly. The 30-year old then celebrated his victory in style and took a victory lap before halting at Lane No.5 where he got down and kissed the finish line and then showcased his signature lightning bolt pose for the last time on his home turf.

Bolt did not compete in the fastest 100-meter race which was won by Johan Blake who covered the distance in 9.97 seconds just 0.03 seconds ahead of runner-up Akani Simbine from South Africa.

Bolt had revealed in a press conference on Thursday that he is more focused on giving back to his fans this year rather than trying to break his world records of 9.58 seconds in 100 meters and 19.19 seconds in the 200 meters respectively.
