Six-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt has confirmed that he will compete at the London Anniversary Games in preparation for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
The Jamaican sprinter will take part in the event held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford from July 22 to 23.
"I am pleased to announce my return to the Olympic stadium in London for the 2016 Anniversary Games," said Bolt. "I know the athletics fans in London are very knowledgeable and passionate about track and field and will come out in force and create a great atmosphere like they always do.
"I first competed in the London Grand Prix in 2005 when the event was in Crystal Palace, this will be my ninth time to compete in a city I know very well. There are a lot of Jamaicans living in the UK and I always get great support - it is like my home away from home. See you in July."
Chief executive of British Athletics chief executive Niels de Vos added: "Usain Bolt is a global sporting icon. This will be one of the last opportunities for families to attend the Anniversary Games and see him compete.
"The London Anniversary Games is one of the very best sporting events in Britain and will be even more special this year as it is staged so close to the Olympic Games."
Bolt won gold in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at London 2012.
