Usain Bolt was scheduled to compete in both the Paris and Lausanne Diamond League meets, in the 100m and 200m races. Paris race organisers said he pulled out due to a left leg injury, which occurred after his last race.

“I’m disappointed not to be able to compete in Paris and Lausanne. I love running at these meetings but at the moment I am unable to compete at 100 percent. I look forward to getting back into full training as soon as possible,” Bolt said in a statement on his website.
