I am gutted, I am so sorry, a distraught Gemili told BBC Sport.
All my form went from the window and I conducted like such an amateur.
It proved not to be enough although the European champion twice set seasons bests in the and matched his semi-final period in the final.

So many times I believed in my brain Im going to be world champion this season, the American, tipped by many as the guy to take over from Usain Bolt since the face of the game, told BBC Sport.
I have it on my cellphone, Ive been saying it since the season began, each day I have been hitting on my car window on the way back in practice saying,I will be world champion this season, as the songs blasted out.
That is actually my first one and that I really dont know a good deal of people who can say that they came for the first world championships and caught the gold

This was an opportunity. I cant believe I let it go when I had it, said the Briton, who in recent times has been hampered by hamstring problems,
I really feel like I have let so many individuals down. The previous two years I return to where I need to be and have been plagued with injuries. Not to break 20 minutes is heartbreaking and disappointing. I had the medal and it slipped out of my hands.
Gemili needed his funding cut from an individual athlete into a athlete last year and has said that it has given him fire. This functionality in Doha has added on the horizon to this with next years Tokyo Olympics.
I have to take the positives I guess, he said. Its re-lit something within me now. Proceed to Tokyo this past year, its winnable.
