The race will be the third confirmed European appearance for the Jamaican, who hopes to defend his world 100 and 200 titles in South Korea later this year.

Bolt will run a 100 metres in Rome on May 26th and a 200 at Oslo on June 9th.

All three competitions are part of the 14-meeting Diamond League series.
