Usain Bolt says that he is “disappointed” to lose one of his nine gold medals, but added, “I don’t think it will take away from what I have done throughout the sport.”

Bolt, who won the medals – 100m, 200m and 4x100m in Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016, respectively has lost the third relay medal due to teammate, Nesta Carter’s positive substance violation result.

Carter, who was a part of Jamaica’s 4x100m successful team in Beijing, tested positive for a banned prohibited substance methylhexaneamine.
