How Twitter reacted to Usain Bolt losing his last ever race

It’s like Brexit all over again.

LAST NIGHT, USAIN Bolt ran his last ever individual race at the World Athletics Championships.

What was supposed to be a fond farewell to the greatest sprinter of all time was spoiled when Bolt’s longtime rival Justin Gatlin came out of nowhere to snatch the gold medal.

Gatlin, who has served two doping suspensions over the course of his career, was an unpopular winner and was booed by the crowd in the stadium.

It was just like Brexit all over again.

Just when you think America couldn’t get more unpopular…

The Holy Trinity.

“Is Theresa May outside?”

Some people could relate…

Usain Bolt: still faster than Virgin Media broadband.

And hey, at least he’s still the people’s champion
