Off the Boil

Was brewing a HBC Blonde kit today and the fuse went on my boiler, didn't cop at the time. So the wort was down at about 90deg for the last 15 or so of the "boil" .
Am I going to run into bother here?
Should I go ahead and bottle?

Thanks Rossa, to be honest I was always going to stick with it, I'm too greedy! Still, nice to get a second opinion.

It's well above pasteurisation temp anyway and had gone through a bit of a boil.  ;)

My worry was sticking the hops on at the end, am I likely to get contamination since it wasn't over the boiling point?

Hops were for preserving beer in the day, so that's fine. Sure dry hopping would be beer suicide otherwise.
Fermenting: IPA, Lambic, Mead
Conditioning: Lambic, Cider, RIS, Ole Ale, Saison
On Tap: IPA, Helles, Best Bitter

For my pale ales most of the hops go in post boil.

Grand job, thanks for that lads.
