London: Star runner and six-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt has been reportedly selected for Jamaica for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

According to the BBC, Bolt is expected to be named in the 4x100m relay squad, when an official announcement is made on Wednesday.

He had previously ruled himself out of the 100m and 200m individual races, as he was recovering from a foot injury.

The 27-year-old won gold medals in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.

Bolt announced last week that he intended to make himself available for the Games despite an injury-disrupted season.

Bolt has never raced in the Commonwealth Games, having missed the events in Melbourne in 2006 and Delhi four years ago.
