Usain Bolt returned to the scene of his triple Olympic glory and duly delivered for 60,000 camera-flashing fans as he overcame a slow start to win the 100 metres and give the London Anniversary Games the Friday finale it demanded.

 The six-time Olympic champion ran 9.85sec, his fastest time this season, to win the men’s 100m at the Anniversary Games on Friday night.

It was a night to remember to remember for all the fans who successfully celebrated the Games in 2012.
