Beer bottle thrown at 100m finalists

This is the moment a bottle is thrown onto the track at the start of the Men's 100m Final on Day 9 of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

It was thrown by a fan seconds before the starting pistol was fired and fell close behind Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake.

Police arrested the alleged culprit who was drunk and a court date is expected on Monday. However before the authorities got involved reports suggest Dutch judo bronze medalist Edith Bosch collared the culprit first.

We hope so.
