Usain Bolt is confirmed as part of the Jamaican team to compete at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow later this month.

Six-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt has been named in Jamaica's sprint team for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow later this month.

The 27-year-old announced last week that he will be competing in Scotland, despite struggling with a foot injury over the course of the season.

While Bolt has made himself available for the Games, the world-record breaker suggested that he is unlikely to compete in the individual races.

According to STV, the Jamaican Athletics Administrative Association have confirmed that Bolt will be part of the 4x100m relay team.

The sprinter did not feature in the Jamaican Championships last weekend.
