Paris - Jamaican sprint king Usain Bolt, who has suffered a foot injury, will not race again until mid-June at the Ostrava meeting in the Czech Republic, his agent confirmed to AFP.

“At the moment, we have confirmed the presence of Usain at Ostrava, Paris and Malmo. We will announce other dates soon,” said Ricky Simms.

The Ostrava meeting takes place on June 17 with Paris on July 5 and Malmo on August 5.

French sports daily L'Equipe reported on Friday that Olympic champion and world record holder Bolt had spent the last two weeks in Munich for treatment on his inflamed foot which has been bothering him for some weeks.

Despite the setback, Simms said that Bolt will still train from next week.
