RIO DE JANEIRO Aug 18 (Reuters) - Latest news from the 13th day of competition at the Rio Olympics on Thursday (all times GMT):

0200 BOLT RELIEVED TO WIN GOLD AGAIN, SAYS IT COULD BE HIS LAST 200M RACE

"It's something that you work so hard for, so that when the moment comes, winning is just relief. Obviously so much could have gone wrong. So to win today, the feeling is one of relief," he said after winning the men's 200 metres gold.

"I don't know about the 200m in the future. Next year at the World Championships it will likely just be the 100m, even though my coach keeps trying to convince me otherwise. But personally for me, I think this is the last time I will run the 200m."

"I wanted to become a legend, a double Olympic champion at 23 years old. I can't believe it."   Continuación...
