World's fastest man, Usain Bolt, has withdrawn from Diamond League meetings in Paris and Lausanne, the athlete himself confirmed on Tuesday.

 

Bolt was expected to run 100m on July 4 in Paris and 200m race on July inLausanne, however, a problem with the sacroiliac joint in his back has forced the 28-year-old to withdraw from both diamond league meets.

"I'm disappointed not to be able to compete in Paris and Lausanne. I love running at these meetings, but at the moment I am unable to compete at 100%. I look forward to getting back into full training as soon as possible," Bolt said in a statement on his official website.

The sprint world record holder Bolt is currently in Munich where he has been receiving  a treatment from Doctor Muller-Wohlfahrt. 

Bolt will spend the next couple of days in Munich getting treatment after which he will resume full training in his quest to defend his titles at the IAAF World T&F Championships in Beijing at the end of August.
