World record holder Bolt ripped off his vest as soon as the second gun went off to indicate the false start and was led disconsolately from the track.

His 21-year-old training partner Blake made the most of Bolt's absence, storming home in 9.92 seconds to claim his first major title.

American Walter Dix pipped Kim Collins to silver in 10.08 seconds, dipping over the line to leave the 2003 champion from St Kitts and Nevis with a third world championship bronze medal in 10.09.

The field for the final had already been weakened by the absence through injury of Bolt's most likely challengers, American former world champion Tyson Gay and former world record holder Asafa Powell.
