OLYMPICS : Usain Bolt wins 100m in Rome - fastest this year

Usain Bolt has stormed back to form by winning the 100m race at the Rome Diamond League meeting in 9.76 seconds, the fastest time in the world this year.

Bolt exploded out of the blocks in Rome to hit the front early on and power away from compatriot Asafa Powell, who was second in 9.91 secs, with European champion Christopher Lemaitre third in 10.04.

Bolt had recently struggled to victory in a time of 10.04 seconds in Ostrava, the first time since Toronto in 2009 that he had failed to break 10 seconds outside a heat or semi-final.
