MANCHESTER: Usain Bolt has set yet another world record. The triple Olympic champion is now the fastest in the world at 150 meters after winning a street race in Manchester, said media reports.

Bolt roared out of the blocks in the rarely run event. Despite only recently recovering from a car accident and putting the poor conditions behind him, he left the rest of the field in his wake and cruised to a world record time of 14.36 seconds.

The stunning performance saw Bolt cover the last 100 meters in an incredible 8.72 seconds.

The sprinter also denied recent newspaper reports claiming he didn't want to defend his Olympic title at London 2012.
