Usain Bolt and passenger suffer personal injury

Three-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt still hopes to run at the Manchester City games on May 17, despite suffering personal injury in a car accident in Jamaica on Wednesday.

Bolt's agent, Ricky Simms, commented, "We are pleased to report that Usain Bolt is fine after his car accident in Kingston yesterday afternoon.

"He has been released from hospital and will have a few days' rest as advised by the JAAA's doctor. The main injuries were to his left foot when he stepped on some thorns when getting out of the car.

"After consultation with coach Mills and JAAA it has been decided that, as a precaution, he will not run in the Kingston International on Saturday. We will continue to monitor his progress over the next few days. It is too early to say if this will have any impact on his training and racing programme in the next few weeks. His next scheduled race is the Manchester City Games on 17 May."

It is believed that a 22-year-old woman sustained passenger injuries in the car accident, in which Bolt's vehicle overturned and landed in a ditch. It is not known if any no win, no fee solicitors have been contacted in relation to the incident.
