Olympic champion Usain Bolt regained his 100 meters world title and won a fourth individual World Championships gold with a season's best of 9.77 seconds in Moscow.

In heavy rain, the 26-year-old Jamaican made amends for his false start in Daegu two years ago and further cemented his status as the greatest sprinter in history.

The six-time Olympic champion overtook Justin Gatlin in the final stages, forcing the American to settle for silver in 9.85.

Bolt's compatriot Nesta Carter claimed bronze.
