EIGHT-TIME Olympic champion Usain Bolt will run the 100 metres at the Diamond League meeting in Monaco on July 21, organisers announced on Wednesday.

The Jamaican sprinting legend is competing in his final season before retirement and will use the Monaco event as a warm-up for the world championships in London that start on August 5. The world-record holder (9.58sec) won his first race of the year in Kingston earlier this month in 10.03sec. (Agencies)
