Paris - Usain Bolt will compete again at the Areva Diamond League meet in Paris on July 5.

Organisers said on Monday that the six-time Olympic champion will compete in the 100 metres, having set a meet record of 19.73 when he won the 200 last year, beating fellow Jamaican Warren Weir and former European champion Christophe Lemaitre of France.

Last year, the 27-year-old Bolt won the 100, 200 and 4x100 relay at the world championships. He won the same three races at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics and the 2009 worlds.
