Jamaican sprint legend Usain Bolt will run the 100m at the Golden Spike on June 28, his first European start before August’s world championships, organisers said Tuesday.

“Last weekend, he confirmed he was ready to race,” Miroslav Cernosek, head of the TK Plus agency, said in a statement.

This will be Bolt’s ninth -- and last -- appearance at the event in the eastern Czech steel hub of Ostrava.
