Usain Bolt’s coach, Glen Mills, has backed the sprinting superstar to come good at this month’s World Championships in Beijing.

The 28-year-old Bolt will enter the August 22 to 30 showpiece at the Bird’s Nest with question marks over his form after a series of lacklustre performances in recent months.

However, Mills said while Bolt had suffered several injury setbacks recently, which had affected his preparation, he was the type of athlete who was always highly motivated for major championships.

“The last two years have been very challenging for both Usain and myself,” Mills said.

“Unfortunately, he has had a number of different injuries to overcome which have affected his training and the number of competitions he has been able to compete in. But Bolt is a champion who knows nothing but excellence when performing on the world stage.”
