PARIS (AFP) - Jamaica's Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt, currently recovering from a foot injury, said on Friday he is not ready to race at meets in Ostrava or Paris.

World record holder Bolt had been expected to make his return on the track at Ostrava in the Czech Republic on June 17 with the Diamond League meet in Paris on July 5.

The six-time Olympic champion said, however, that he was not ready to return after missing several weeks of training in March and April.

"Unfortunately due to the training that I missed I am behind where I am at normally at this time of year and will not be ready to race in the Ostrava Golden Spike meet or Meeting Areva in Paris," the 27-year-old said on his website.
