Saturday night marked the end of an era for the athletics world, as two of it’s greatest superstars called time on their glistening careers.

Usain Bolt, arguably the greatest sprinter of all time, and Sir Mo Farah, one of Britain’s greatest ever long distance runners, were taking part in the final track races of their careers at the World Championships in London. Bolt was part of the Jamaican 4x100m relay team, and Sir Mo was running the 5000m.

It wasn’t the fairy-tale ending that everyone hoped for though, with Bolt pulling up on the home stretch with an apparent leg injury, and Farah missing out on gold but battling to take the silver medal.

It marked the last time that either man will be seen on the track, and people on Twitter had nothing but adulation for the two iconic athletes:

 

After the race, the man himself took to Twitter to thank all of his fans for their support.

Similar praise also poured in for Mo:

Thanks for the memories, guys.
