documentary / 8.30pm / BBC1
the world athletics Championships, which starts in London on Friday, will be Usain Bolt’s swansong.

This intimate portrait, made by his best friend, follows Bolt from 2015, when he was easily distracted by nightclubs, among other things, and young guns Yohan Blake and Justin Gatlin were proving tough competition, to Rio 2016, when he ended his Olympic career by winning the ‘triple triple’.
