Usain Bolt has won the 200 meters to complete the sprint double at a third straight Olympics.

Bolt wanted to lower his world record of 19.19 seconds but the light drizzle at Olympic Stadium on Thursday contributed to a slightly slower winning time of 19.78.

Andre de Grasse of Canada took silver in 20.02 to go with his bronze in the 100, and Christophe Lemaitre of France was third in 20.12.
