The 2011 world 100m champion and double Olympic silver medalist, Yohan Blake, has ruled out for the rest of the 2014 season after undergoing hamstring surgery, athletes coach Glen Mills announced on Tuesday.
"Right now he's on crutches, he had to have an operation a couple of days ago," Mills told Reuters.
Blake injured his hamstring at the Glasgow Grand Prix in July 11 in the 100m race.
"Right now he's on crutches, he had to have an operation a couple of days ago," Glenn Mills told Reuters.
"The injury was quite severe and the original prognosis was misdiagnosed and he went Germany and when they had a good look, they realised that it was more serious and required surgery, so he'll be out for quite a long time."
Blake now is focusing on recovering as soon as possible and put all his focus on next year´s Beijing world outdoor championships and 2016 Rio Olympics.
