Bolt to compete in Glasgow?

8:38 am on 29 June 2014

The six-time Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt has announced he is available to compete at July's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The Jamaican star says he's unlikely to take part in an individual event but could run in the relay.

Bolt, the 100 metres and 200 metres world record holder, has been struggling with a foot injury and recently pulled out of a number of high-profile events.

The 27-year-old says he's not fit enough to attempt to qualify in the 100 and 200 at the Jamaican Championships this weekend.

He says he doesn't want to take the place of any of his compatriots who qualify this weekend in an individual event, but says he is available for relay duty if the selectors feel he can be an asset to the Jamaican team in Glasgow.
