"It's been amazing," Bolt said of his experience at the London Olympics, according to USA Today. "I love you guys," he continued to say to the crowd in the stadium.
The relay team included Jamaican superstars, Bolt and Yohan Blake, both who have gathered gold and silver in the 100M sprint earlier in the Olympic events.
Usain Bolt added to his collection of gold on Saturday. He earned his third at the 4x100 Meter relay and has gathered 3 from his successful runs during the Beijing Olympics.
While taking gold in the Men's 100M Final, Bolt set a new Olympic record time of 9.63 seconds; the second fastest time in history.

Needless to say, Bolt has already made history at these London Games by becoming the first person to successfully defend his 200M Olympic title.
Team USA pushed the Jamaican sprint team all the way and at the last baton handover they were just behind the Jamaican side. However, it was Usain Bolt who was running the final leg for Jamaica, and as soon as the baton was passed successfully his power was there was all to see. He immediately pulled out to create space between himself and his American rival and once he got away there was no catching him.
He burst through the live setting a world record of 36.85 seconds to send the 80,000 fans in the stadium into raptures.
Canada came in third and celebrated as if they had won themselves. However, as the dust settled on the historic win for Jamaica is appeared as though the Canadian side had been disqualified. It was not immediately clear their infringement but the news saw the Canadian quartet fall to the floor in despair.
But this day belonged to Jamaica and to those who witnessed the amazing historic relay time from Usain Bolt and his team.
