World and Olympic champion Usain Bolt powered away late in the race to destroy his rivals and win the 100 meters in 9.8 seconds at the season-closing Diamond League meeting in Brussels on Friday.

Bolt, who won 100, 200 and 4x100 relay golds at last month's world championships, was one of several Moscow medallists in action.

After a poor start, Bolt's acceleration over the second half of the race was again the difference in a 100 meters featuring six of the finalists from Moscow.

American Michael Rodgers was second in his seasons best of 9.90 and Jamaica's world bronze medalist Nesta Carter was third. Justin Gatlin, second to Bolt in Moscow, finished fourth.

Bolt's compatriot Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has been the dominant women's sprinter this year and the world and Olympic champion set a meeting record of 10.72 as clear winner of her 100 event.

It was an evening of top competition in the Belgian capital and the King Badouin Stadium was a sell-out for the event.
