Usain Bolt will run in the 4×100 metres relay heats for Jamaica on Saturday despite being a bit sore after winning bronze in the 100m final at the weekend, he told Reuters on Monday.

“We’ll see, we haven’t done any baton changes as yet with the guys, but I feel we are ready,” said the 11-time World Championships gold medallist.

Ugandan athletes return to the fray in London on Friday.

Dorcus Ajok in heat two of the women’s 800m semifinals and Halima Nakaayi in heat three will be seeking spots in the finals at 9:45pm and 9:55pm respectively.

Ronald Musagala will follow in heat one of the men’s 1500m at 10:10pm EAT.
