Usain Bolt confirms his participation in this summer's London 2012 Anniversary Games.

Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt has been confirmed as one of the athletes competing in this summer's London 2012 Anniversary Games.

The 26-year-old, who won three gold medals at the Olympics in the English capital last year, makes up the field of competitors including Team GB heroes Jessica Ennis, Mo Farah and Greg Rutherford.

"I'm looking forward to coming back to the UK, especially with it being a year since winning three gold medals in the Olympic Stadium," said Bolt. "The crowd were amazing at the Games, and I hope they will be out again in their numbers at the end of July.

"I haven't competed at the London Diamond League since 2009 but it has always been a great meet with lots of Jamaican support. It almost feels like running at home."

The event will get underway from July 26 to 28.
