Organisers of the Zurich Diamond League meeting say Usain Bolt is among 19 World Championships gold medallist confirmed for the August 29 meet.

Bolt leads a 100-metre lineup featuring the top six finishers in the World Championships final at Moscow last week.

On Sunday, the final day of the World Championships, Bolt sprinted past American Carl Lewis into the world track championship record book by completing a triple gold-medal performance.

He anchored Jamaica to victory in the 4x100-metre relay.

Bolt tied the American sprint legend with his 10th world championship medal.

Each has eight gold medals, but the scale tips in Bolt's favor because he has a pair of silver medals, while Lewis has a silver and bronze.
