Eight-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt ran his first sub-10-second time of the year to win the 100m at the Diamond League in Monaco.

The 30-year-old Jamaican clocked 9.95 in his final Diamond League race to beat America's Isiah Young (9.98) and South African Akani Simbine (10.02).

Britain's CJ Ujah ran 10.02 to claim fourth.

Elsewhere Britain's Laura Muir was comfortably beaten by Kenyan Hellen Obiri in the women's 3,000m.

Bolt has confirmed he will run the 100m and 4x100m relay at the World Championships in London in August, his final event before retiring.

With two weeks to go until the event, this was arguably Bolt's toughest test since he won double Olympic gold at Rio 2016.

The global icon laboured to victory in 10.06 in Ostrava last month but finally dipped under the 10-second mark against a much tougher field in Monaco on Friday.
