The 21-year-old is the fastest in the world over 100 metres this year and is one of Bolt's major rivals looking to deny him the ideal send-off in London.
"I promise I won't be there", he said as Bolt chuckled.
By contrast in major finals in 2012, 2013, 2016 and most notably at the world championships in Beijing 2015 when Gatlin came into the final faster and favoured, he was left in the Jamaican great's wake.
These events have become part and parcel of every global championship and though Tuesday's version in east London lacked the dancing girl razzmatazz of his Rio welcome past year, it scored heavily on nostalgia as every aspect of his stellar career was raked over anew.
"To not have this opportunity is unimaginable to me but it is the reality I am faced with", De Grasse said late Wednesday in a statement.
On Thursday, McMillan said De Grasse has always respected Bolt, but their relationship changed after the Rio Olympics past year when De Grasse came close to beating him in the 100-metre semi-finals. I'll be back stronger and faster than ever. Less so this season however, where he has been only the 23rd fastest in the world. "My record of 300m has given me confidence, so I look forward to see how it translates into the other two events", Van Niekerk added. "I can't think, other than Muhammad Ali, of anybody that has so had an impact inside or beyond their sport".

This was thought to be in response to De Grasse suggesting Bolt might be slowing down in his final season.
"I see him around".
"I'm comfortable saying I'm a legend because I've proved myself". Still, someone has to win these races once Bolt is gone. "I feel I've worked hard and deserve to be on the stage and I'm ready to compete". And few gave a chance to Van Niekerk to get even close to the mark previous year when he was allotted the outside for the Olympic final, where all others can target you - and you see no one usually until it's too late to react. We're going to go in the right direction and I'm happy about that situation.
