'He kept apologising to us'

Jamaica's Julian Forte speaking to IAAF radio about team-mate Usain Bolt's injury: "He didn't tell us exactly what happened but from what I saw, it looked like a strain or a cramp of some sort.

"He kept apologising to us but we told him there was no need to apologise - injuries are part of the sport."

Best in Europe

Men's 4x100m relay

The time of 37.47 by the British team was also a European record, beating the time of 37.73 that had stood since 1999.

CJ Ujah: "I am proud of these guys and those behind the scenes. It is crazy to do this in London. I can't even talk right now."

Adam Gemili: "We are World champs! To run it with Danny Talbot after such disappointment in London 2012, it is so special to come back. Thank you to everyone. It's crazy. Honestly a dream and a reality tonight. Wow!"

Sheer delight

Men's 4x100m relay

Danny Talbot: "2012 didn't go our way and we have been working hard since then. It's a massive team effort and we win as a team and lose as a team. We are world champions at home. We will never get this feeling again."

Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake: "I wasn't sure if I had won or not, I gave it my all but I could see Christian Coleman out of the corner of my eye. The feeling of euphoria was from infinity. I can't register it. We smashed the British record to pieces."

Bolt did not want to leave in a wheelchair did he. He refused to leave in that way and that's right - he should never have to finish like that.

'The most amazing public in the world'

Champion Kevin Mayer: "I am so, so tired. I cannot even imagine I am the world champion.

"I just want to say this is the most amazing public in the world."

Men's 4x100m relay

It's easy to say now, and hindsight is a wonderful thing, but should Usain Bolt have retired in Rio?

'Gemili was just ridiculous'

Michael Johnson

Four-time Olympic gold medallist athlete on BBC TV

An amazing and outstanding performance from that British team. They beat everyone fair and square.

They delivered on a night when everyone was here - not necessarily to see this.

Adam Gemili was just ridiculous down the back stretch. He opened up a gap that was always going to be hard for anyone to chase down.

GB perfection

Tom Fordyce

Chief sports writer at London Stadium

That is a near-perfect display from the British sprint quartet - CJ Ujah with phenomenal reaction time of 0.124 secs, Adam Gemili brilliant second leg after injury-wrecked season, Danny Talbot with flawless bend, Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake holding off the 100m silver medallist Christian Coleman and finishing with a beautifully timed dip.

That's how records and gold medals happen.
