Bolt best at Golden Spike

Usain Bolt eased to victory on his first race on European soil this year in the 200 metres at the Golden Spike event in Ostrava.

The larger-than-life Jamaican lived up to his showbiz reputation as he made light of the greasy conditions and waved to the delighted Czech crowd on his way to the blocks.

But after a few moments of levity, Bolt was focus personified.

He made a customary slow start, with American Isiah Young getting the early advantage, but the 28-year-old took complete control round the corner and powered home in 20.13 seconds.
