KINGSTON (Reuters) - Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt has pulled out of the Paris and Lausanne Diamond League meetings due to a leg injury, organizers of the Paris event said on Tuesday.

“I’m disappointed not to be able to compete in Paris and Lausanne. I love running at these meetings but at the moment I am unable to compete at 100 percent. I look forward to getting back into full training as soon as possible,” Bolt said in a statement.

The Paris meeting is on Saturday with Lausanne the following Thursday.
