Great Britain's men's 4x100m relay team discuss their failure to get the baton around the track legally.

Confusion between Danny Talbot and Adam Gemili regarding the baton changeover saw Team GB's men's 4x100m squad disqualified at the semi-final stage at the London Olympics this evening.

Having come off the track, all four have been talking to BBC Sport about the incident.

Christian Malcolm: "We are a team. It's unfortunate. It's one of those things that happens but it's a fantastic performance to run the time we did. Daniel has come in at the last moment. This is a big stadium and it can be overwhelming."

Danny Talbot: "I don't know what happened. I just couldn't catch Adam. I'm really gutted and it's devastating."

Adam Gemili: "I went off. Maybe I went early or too hard. It's disappointing as we could have been in contention in the final."

Dwain Chambers: "At the end of the day we are proud to be here representing the country. We have to build as a team and hopefully we can do better in the future."
