Triple Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt is undergoing treatment in Germany for what his coach described as an aggravated hamstring injury following his first race of the season on Saturday. 

Bolt's coach, Glen Mills, says the two-time Olympic 100 and 200 metres champion had tweaked the hamstring during Saturday’s Cayman Invitational meeting.

Mills says Bolt’s injury is unlikely to prevent the world record holder from running in Friday’s meeting in Ostrava in the Czech Republic. 

Bolt clocked a modest 10.05 seconds to win the men's 100 metres, ahead of American Dentarius Locke and training partner Kemar Bailey-Cole.

Bolt is being treated in Munich by Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt who has looked after his affairs for the past decade.

The 29-year-old Bolt will be targeting his third consecutive sprint double at this summer's Olympic Games in Rio.
