Usain Bolt, considered the world's fastest man, may not compete in the Rio Olympic Games next month.
Bolt tweeted on Friday that he has a Grade 1 tear in his hamstring and sought a medical exemption from the 100-meter final and the rest of the Jamaican National Championships.
He said, "I will seek treatment immediately and hope to show fitness at the London Anniversary Games on July 22 to earn selection for the Olympic Games in Rio."
