Bolt was sluggish out of the blocks but quickly recovered to ease to the front, before shooting a look at Bahrain's Andrew Fisher as he glided over the finish line, barely exerting himself as he clocked a time of 10.07 seconds.

The Jamaican is undoubtedly saving himself for a huge head to head clash with Justin Gatlin in the 100m final, with the American also cruising through his heat today.

However, it was the cocksure manner with which Bolt won his race that caught the eye, with the back-to-back 100m Olympic champion so assured of victory that he had no problem with easing up slightly and staring down his race rival.
