LONDON: Olympic champion and world record holder Usain Bolt overcame a poor start to win the 100m at the London Diamond League meeting on Friday.

Returning to the Olympic Stadium where he defended his title 12 months ago, the Jamaican won in 9.85sec. "It's wonderful to be back here. I had a bad start but that's never the best part of my racing," said Bolt in his last race before next month's world championships in Moscow. "The more races I have, it'll be OK. "It's always great to be in London, there's so much energy."

Michael Rodgers of the United States was second in 9.98sec with Jamaica's Nesta Carter, in 9.99sec, taking third. (AFP)
