RIO 2016: WHY USA WERE DISQUALIFIED FOR BRONZE MEDAL IN 4X100M

The American team of Justin Gatlin, Mike Rodgers, Tyson Gay and Trayvon Bromell celebrated winning a bronze medal in the 4x100m men's final at the Rio before they were disqualified.

Gatlin, who won 100m silver, was ruled to have received the baton too early from Rodgers during the first handover.

Tyson Gay said " we already did the victory lap and then, when we talked to TV, they told us Justin got the stick before the zone. He's saying he didn't."

The Canadian Team who finished fourth were automatically given the third spot and taken the bronze medal while USA Team try to appeal for it.
