Jamaica was the favorite with odds of +130 followed by Canada and China, each promising a payout of $450 on a $100 bet.

The result followed Marcell Jacobs’ gold for Italy in the men’s 100m final last week.

For the Italians, this win also ended a 73 year drought with gold in the men's 4x100m relay.  That's right, Italy has not taken home gold in this event since 1948. 

Lorenzo Patta, Eseosa Desalu, Marcell Jacobs and Filippo Tortu finished in 37.50, edging out the British team by one one-hundredth of a second.

Britain took the silver while Canada picked up the bronze medal.
