'Man Utd will sign me on deadline day', says Usain Bolt

UKAD chief Nicole Sapstead admitted being disappointed at missing out on the contract

"I am looking forward to it. But over the years we're doing a better job, it's getting clean and we're catching up to a lot of athletes", Bolt added.

"I said a couple of years ago it had to get really bad, when there's nowhere else to go but up".

"That's what I keep reading and what my team keeps telling me, so I've got to prove myself again", the 30-year-old said, ahead of the blue riband event of the IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations) World Championships.

Meanwhile, the IAAF has voted unanimously to maintain Russia's ban from global track and field competition as there are still issues that need to be resolved regarding the country's anti-doping fight.

Jamaican sprint legend Usain Bolt has labelled himself "the underdog" as he seeks to round off his glittering track career by retaining his world 100m title this week.

"It's still something that we're working on every day", said Van Niekerk, when asked whether he might shift more in the future to the 100m and 200m events that have always been Bolt's domain rather than the one-lap event. "[Losing is] not going to happen so we won't have that problem". He expressed how he wants to help his sport improve, a desire that may see him remain in athletics and pass on his wisdom to the new generation.

The men's World 100m final is on Saturday, 5 August, while the men's 4x100m relay race - which will mark the end of Bolt's career - is on the following Saturday.

US tests defense system after North Korea missile launch

There were moments of reflection over the death of his close friend, Olympic high-jump silver medalist Germaine Mason, earlier this year, and how it hit Bolt so hard he couldn't bear the thought of training.

"Anyone who decides when they need to walk away from anything they do is a great feeling", Bolt said.

"And my coach gave me my space, he gave me time to get over it".

Bolt insists he was ready for London - where he first defended his Olympic titles in 2012 - and wants his legacy to stand the test of time.

"The next championships should be fun because I will be watching to see who can hold the nerves, especially if somebody is running good all season, then to see who can hold their nerves".

Van Niekerk and Bolt has been involved in an athletic pas de deux (duet) since the Rio Olympic Games where they have complimented each other not only on the track with their performances, but also in their praise of each other. "I don't know how to describe it; I don't have his number".
