Injured Bolt out until mid-June

Jamaican sprinter and Usain Bolt, who has suffered a foot injury, will not race again until mid-June at the Ostrava meeting in the Czech Republic.

Confirming this, his agent Ricky Simms said, "At the moment, we have confirmed the presence of Usain at Ostrava, Paris and Malmo. We will announce other dates soon."

In spite of this setback, Simms said that Bolt will still train from next week.

The Ostrava meeting takes place on June 17 with Paris on July 5 and Malmo on August 5.

A French sports daily L’Equipe had reported on Friday that Olympic champion and world record holder Bolt had spent the last two weeks in Munich for treatment on his inflamed foot which has been bothering him for some weeks.
