Bolt salutes Rudisha on Kingston arrival

But the fact is, I am the world record holder, so there is no reason to want to break the world record, ' Bolt reiterated, while he shared the podium with some of the best athletes in modern track and field.

Van Niekerk and Simbine have been training with Bolt this week, and the former said: "It's a massive privilege to be here and pay respect for what he has done for track and field".

The most accomplished sprinter in history, Bolt astounded at last summer's Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, when he secured a triple-triple by winning gold in the 100 meters, 200 meters and 4x100-meter relay for the third straight Olympics.

Bolt will, in just over a fortnight later, lead his fellow stars to the Czech Republic for the Golden Spike event before his imminent retirement from global competitions at the London world championships in August.

"He's an incredible treasure for Jamaica, not just as an amazingly successful sprinter and the fastest man in the world but as a human being with his contribution to his country".

Andre De Grasse isnt interested in taking over from Usain Bolt as the worlds best sprinter when the eight-time Olympic champion retires later this year.

He will take part in a special, "Salute to a Legend" 100m sprint against teammates Michael Frater, Asafa Powell, and Nesta Carter, as well us CARICOM competitors Daniel Bailey from Antigua and the Barbadian Ramon Gittens.

In the video, a deputy can be heard saying: "What's the deal, man?" You tried to open up the driver's door of a police vehicle . It was later discovered that Humphries was involved in a auto accident just moments before on the same road.

The 30-year-old multiple Olympic gold medalist, is scheduled to run in the 100 metres at the Racers Grand Prix on Saturday. I never expected this. I wanted to start off the year on a high, and I'm just glad my coach has gotten me healthy and ready to race.

He ran 19.90 on April 22 and is the joint-second fastest over the 200m this year.

"There is just one Bolt".

Bolt s coach Glen Mills said Thursday he doesn t want to see him go and has asked Bolt to help out with some of the coaching. I'm just going out there with an open mind. "What bothers me most is athletes coming up through the ranks and when they get to certain level they always want to beat me".

"I know the fans are going to miss it and I will miss it also because I know the energy is going to be good in the stadium so I'm looking forward to it".

Felix added that Bolt had changed athletics "in such a great way".
