HAMSTRING TEAR THREATENS BOLT’S RIO CAMPAIGN

A hamstring tear is threatening Jamaican sprint megastar Usain Bolt’s bid for three straight Olympic 100-metre gold medals.

The flamboyant 29-year-old revealed details of his injury via his Facebook page, and that he would be pulling out of the remainder of the Jamaican National Championships.

Bolt confirmed he hopes to return for the London Anniversary Games in two weeks’ time to prove his fitness for Rio.

A subsequent report said Bolt will visit German doctor Hans Muller-Wohlfahrt, who helped the six-time Olympic gold medallist overcome a pelvic complaint ahead of another triumphant campaign at the 2015 World Championships in Beijing.
