Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Golden Gala or­gan­is­ers say Usain Bolt will skip the Rome Di­a­mond League meet on June 5, cit­ing re­ported in­jury prob­lems.

How­ever, Bolt’s man­ager Ricky Simms said that the 100 and 200-me­tre record holder didn’t have a con­tract to run the Rome meet and that he is not aware of any in­juries.

Rome meet di­rec­tor Luigi D’Onofrio said in a state­ment that “we were warned a few days ago about Bolt’s prob­lems. ... Then the con­fir­ma­tion came: Bolt will skip the Rome stop of the Di­a­mond League, the first meet he had de­cided to com­pete in. Ob­vi­ously we’re dis­ap­pointed.”
