Bolt treasured by Jamaicans not only for his speed

Bolt is now back in training and hopeful of showing his form when he makes his last ever appearance in Jamaica at the Racers Grand Prix, at Kingston's National Stadium on Saturday.

The world's fastest man is set to retire from professional competition this summer and will turn his attention to promoting the game of poker to an worldwide audience alongside United States comedian Kevin Hart, who joined the PokerStars roster in May.

On Saturday Bolt was determined to put on a spectacle as he won the 100 metre "Salute to a Legend" race in front of a raucous crowd of 30,000 on the same track where he launched his global career in 2002.

The 30-year-old Bolt leaped out of the blocks and cruised to victory in a time of 10.03, well below his world record time but good enough to beat a solid field.

It will be his final race on his home soil.

Bailey came to the 30,000-capacity National Stadium and joined the sea of yellow and green, vuvuzela blowing fans with her friend, Shawn Dennis, who works as a cashier in Kingston.

Gal Gadot is now one of the most talked-about actresses in Hollywood after her hit film " Wonder Woman " broke records last week. Gadot may not win an Oscar, but she manages to make Diana, Princess of the Amazons, a believable superhero.

Bolt said he has not made any definitive plans for post-retirement career, but said Mills, who is head coach of the club, wants him to be involved in coaching after he quits the sport.

The Canadian added: "For the London world championships I am thinking about both events, the 100m and 200m". I love Jamaica, I love competing here, it's always so much fun and I know it's going to be a special night paying tribute to Usain. When I was growing up, my role models were Don Quarrie, Herb McKenley.

"There is no other place to do the last one because, as you saw, the Olympics in London was just out of this world", he said. "I don't know why?" Bolt was one of the pallbearers at the funeral. Just trying to do my best as always and put on a show for them because that's what they're coming out there to look forward to. A more competitive heat includes 2012 Olympic silver medalist Yohan Blake and South African sprint star Akani Simbine.

Before Bolt, Don Quarrie was one of Jamaica's best-known track and field athletes after he won gold in the 200 metres at the 1976 Olympics.

World record holders David Rudisha of Kenya and South Africa's Wayde van Niekerk, along with North America's most decorated runner, Allyson Felix; Great Britain's distance king Mo Farah; sprint hurdler Sally Pearson of Australia and triple jump sensation Christian Taylor of the US, formed what is probably the greatest assembly of stars in one room at any one time.
