Six-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt has claimed that he is planning to retire after the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.

The 27-year-old Jamaican sprinter, who has also won eight World Championship titles, hopes that he can leave athletics at the pinnacle of the sport.

When asked if he had any plans to quit, Bolt told reporters: "So far it's after the Olympics in Rio. If I'm in great shape and I go there and do what I have to do, I think it would be a good time to retire on top and having dominated for so long."

Bolt was speaking ahead of Friday's Diamond League meeting in Brussels.
