Usain Bolt has run just five times this season, clocking a season's best 10.12 seconds in April.

Triple Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt is set to compete at the London Anniversary Games.

Bolt has struggled with injury this year, but he will return for the event at the London Olympic Stadium on July 24.

A pelvic injury forced him to withdraw from Diamond League races in Paris and Lausanne in June.

He also pulled out of the 100 metres at the Jamaican national trials last month.  

Bolt has run just five times this season, clocking a season's best 10.12 seconds in April.

Bolt, who holds the 100 metres and 200 metres world records, is an eight-time world champion and has won six Olympic gold medals in his career.

Three of which came in London in 2012.

Bolt says the British fans are always great.

And he says he is expecting a lot of Jamaican fans at the three-day meet in London.
