And one local woman got into the spirit of things by pretending to give the sprinter a friendly Glasgow hug.

Bolt said yesterday he is ready to put in a good showing in the sprint relay at the Commonwealth Games after recovering from foot surgery and a hamstring injury.

The Jamaican, who missed nine weeks of training after surgery on his left foot in March, said he is back in sub-10 second shape after training twice a day to for the Glasgow Games.

He said: "It's been rough, but I know what it takes to get back."
