• Bolt is set to quit the sport after next month’s world championships
• Gatlin finished second behind the Jamaican at past two world championships
Usain Bolt could reconsider his decision to quit the sport, according to his American sprint rival Justin Gatlin. Gatlin finished second behind Bolt in last year’s Olympic 100m final and also at the past two world championships with the Jamaican dominant.
Bolt is due to bow out on the global stage in next month’s world championships in London after the 100m and 4x100m relay but Gatlin can see him finding the lure of competition difficult to resist.
