Usain Bolt will be back in Monaco at the Louis II stadium on July 21, competing in the IAAF Diamond League meeting, the landmark annual athletics event. His appearance in the Principality is part of his farewell world tour.

The fastest man in the world holds eight Olympic titles and 11 World titles, and will be running his favourite distance, the 100 metres, in Monaco next month. The occasion also marks the 30th anniversary of the Herculis EBS meetings.

When Bolt was last at Stade Louis, in 2011, he won the 100 metres in 9.88 seconds.

The Herculis EBS meeting is the final IAAF Diamond League fixture before the IAAF World Championships London 2017, which will be Bolt’s last major championship appearance.
