Daegu: Jamaica`s Usain Bolt false started and was disqualified from the world athletics championships 100 metres final on Sunday.

The world record holder went way too early and tore off his running vest after hearing the second gun to signify a false start.

He left the track bare-chested, grimacing and shaking his head before his world title was taken by compatriot Yohan Blake.
