KINGSTON, Jamaica (CMC):

Usain Bolt is being treated in Germany for an "aggravated hamstring injury" following his first race of the season, his coach Glen Mills has disclosed on national radio.

The two-time Olympic 100m and 200m champion tweaked the hamstring during Saturday's Cayman Invitational, Mills revealed during an interview on Jamaica's Hitz 92fm radio station on Monday.

"If you noticed in the race, he was grimacing towards the end," Mills told Hitz 92fm radio.

However, Mill said Bolt's injury is unlikely to stop him from racing in Friday's meeting in Ostrava, the Czech Republic.

Bolt is being treated by Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt, the Munich-based doctor who has attended to him for years.

He raced to an ordinary 10.05 seconds in the 100m, defeating American Dentarius Locke and training partner Kemar Bailey-Cole, who placed second and third, respectively.

Bolt is targeting his third straight victories in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m at August's Olympics, in Brazil.
