Bolt cleared to race in Manchester

May 12, 2009 11:05 IST

Triple Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt will compete in a 150 metres street race in Manchester, England, on Sunday after recovering from a car accident, his agent said on Monday.

A statement released by agent Ricky Simms quoted Bolt's coach Glenn Mills as saying the Jamaican would train in spikes on Monday evening.

"(He) looks okay and will be fine for Manchester," Mills said.

Bolt sustained minor injuries in a car accident in Jamaica in late April. He resumed training on Friday.
