London date for sprint king Bolt

10:32 am on 21 April 2009

The Jamaican Olympic sprint hero Usain Bolt says he will join a star-studded field at this summer's London Grand Prix.

Bolt became the first man to claim the Olympic sprint treble, all in world record times, when he won the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay in Beijing.

The 22-year-old will run the 100m at the two-day meeting in London on July 24 and 25 as top athletes seek to fine-tune their preparations ahead of the World Championships in Berlin three weeks later.
