World and Olympic 100 metres champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has been ruled out of Saturday's Shanghai Diamond League because of a minor toe injury.

The organisers say Fraser-Pryce is currently getting treatment and expects to be fit in short order. 

There have been concerns about Fraser-Pryce’s health in recent days after she failed to show at the Jamaica International Invitational on May 7.

She was down to compete in the 200 metres and was to line up against eventual winner Shaunae Miller from The Bahamas.
