Justin Gatlin vows to boycott BBC and British media over ‘biased’ 100m reports

Seconds out, round two. After Usain Bolt sent the hyperbole meter into overdrive by defeating Justin Gatlin, the USA athlete at the eye of the storm has berated the British media in general, and the BBC in particular, for styling the showdown as a battle of good and evil.

The pair will take to the track again on Tuesday in the 200m heats and are expected to meet again in the final on Thursday, when their opponents may well include the rapidly improving 20-year-old British sprinter Zharnel Hughes.
The unrepentant Gatlin, who may as well have the prefix twice-banned attached to his name given his apparent never-apologise, never-explain stance, will refuse to speak to the BBC for the foreseeable future after taking exception to its coverage of his 100m.
“He’s saved his title, he’s saved his reputation – he may have even saved his sport,” enthused the BBC commentator Steve Cram as the Jamaican crossed the line in 9.79sec, fractionally ahead of the seemingly unassailable Gatlin.
