The American men's 1x400-meter relay team was disqualified Friday night after making an illegal baton transfer in the race in which it appeared they had taken a bronze medal. 

The team from Jamaica -- with Usain Bolt running the last leg of the race -- took gold. Bolt said it was the last race of his Olympic career, with the win giving him a total of nine medals.

USA's women's 4x100-meter relay team took first place and the gold medal on Friday.
