Usain Bolt wins the 200m Diamond League race in Switzerland in a time of 19.58s to break the meeting record.

Usain Bolt has enjoyed a comfortable victory in his first race since capturing triple-Olympic gold at London 2012.

The Jamaican sprint king breezed past a competitive 200m field in a time of 19.58s to break his Diamond League meeting record in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Bolt shaved one hundredth of a second off his previous best at the Swiss track to comfortably beat nearest challenger Churandy Martina of the Netherlands.

Compatriot and close friend Yohan Blake did his best to upstage Bolt earlier in the evening, recording a time of 9.69s in the 100m to equal the second-fastest race of at that distance in history.
