8:18 am on 26 August 2009

Jamaica's triple Olympic and world champion sprinter Usain Bolt will return to China next month for a 100 metres race in Shanghai.

Bolt's agent Ricky Simms has confirmed September 20th as the date for Bolt's first race in Asia since his triumphant Beijing Olympics.

They're also considering a meeting a few days later in the South Korean city of Daegu which will host the next world athletics championships in 2011.

Also in the pipeline is a book deal on Bolt's dramatic rise to become the world's top sprinter.
