Usain Bolt insisted he was ready to defend his Olympic 100m and 200m titles after recovering from a mystery problem which has hampered his preparations for London

Bolt, who finished second to compatriot Yohan Blake over both distances at the Jamaican trials earlier this month, was later forced to withdraw from the Monaco Diamond League meeting citing a “slight problem”.

However the sprint superstar insisted he was fit and ready to take on his rivals as he ventured out of his Birmingham training base to watch Batman blockbuster “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Bolt said: “I’m training hard and looking forward to the start of the Games.” Bolt’s private cinema visit came just two days after 12 people were shot dead at a screening of the film at a theatre in Colorado.
