Bolt is due to compete in Ostrava in the Czech Republic on June 17, a late start for the Jamaican sprinter recovering from a foot injury.

He is also set to compete at the Paris Diamond League meet on July 5, and at Malmo in Sweden in August.

The 27-year-old Jamaican, the world record holder for the 100m and 200m, will also compete at the season’s penultimate Diamond League meet in Zurich on August 28.

However he has not yet decided which distance he will run at the Swiss venue.

Bolt has sought to allay the concerns of fans who may be worried about his late seasonal debut.

“There is never anything to worry about,” he told the Jamaica Observer.

“For me, I take my time throughout my seasons and you know the season is never perfect — niggles here, niggles there”.
