Three-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt says he doesn't use marijuana.

On Sunday, the Jamaican sprinter was quoted in a German newspaper as saying he smoked marijuana when he was very young and learned how to roll a joint.

Bolt released a statement Monday through his manager admitting he tried marijuana at a "tender age," but saying he had not used it again since.

He also apologized for suggesting all young Jamaicans roll joints and urged young athletes not to do drugs of any kind.

Bolt set world records in the 100 and 200 meters at the Beijing Olympics and was part of the Jamaican team that broke the world mark in the 400-meter relay.
