Usain Bolt recovered from a moderate start to win his final 100 meters on home soil, clocking 10.03 seconds at the 2nd Racers Grand Prix in Kingston on Saturday.

Running from lane five in front of a sold-out stadium, Bolt took control of the race before the halfway mark and pulled away to the delight of more than 30,000 spectators.

The 30-year-old double sprint world record holder, who has amassed eight Olympic golds and 13 world championship medals, will make his final bow at the world championships in London in August.
