Bolt ready for World Championships

Sprint King Usain Bolt is gearing up for his final swansong at the 2017 World Championships in London this week.

The Jamaican superstar will defend his 100m and 4x100m titles before calling time on his illustrious career. The 100m race is on Saturday, while the 4x100m takes place the following Saturday.

"Yeah, without a doubt," quipped the 30-year-old when he was asked if he was ready. 

"The last race I ran was a 9.95, so that shows I am going in the right direction. After the two rounds leading up to the 100m final, which always help me, it's all about who keeps their nerve.

"I have been here many times. I know I am ready."

The eight-time olympic gold medallist has never lacked confidence during his record breaking career and fans and athletes alike can expect the same for his final World Championships.  

"You guys know if I show up for a race that means I'm 100% confident," continued Bolt.

"I'm finally here, I've got the hype, I'm really excited and am looking forward to it.

"For some reason I am the underdog again, because that is what I keep reading, what my team keeps telling me, so I have got to prove myself once more.

"But I am ready. It's go time, so let's go."
