Briton on trial for hurling abuse and bottle at Usain Bolt

Sports

"He was trying to walk away so I pushed him hard to stop him," Bosch said in her statement. "I was angry with what he had done which was so disrespectful."

"I was sad to miss the 100 metres," she added.

The court heard that Gill-Webb's behaviour after he was escorted to a police station had been "somewhat unusual".

He gave some "no comment" answers to police questions but also handed over a prepared statement signed "Alan Cumming", the name of a Scottish actor.

He maintained he had nothing to do with throwing the bottle but said he had been "quite hyper" in the stadium.

Prosecutor King said although it was accepted Gill-Webb was unwell at the time, he knew what he was doing and intentionally caused distress to those around him.
