KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) - Olympic triple gold medalist Usain Bolt says he is ready to return to the track after his recent car crash and will run in England on Sunday.

The 22-year-old returned to training last week after crashing his car into a ditch along a Jamaican highway April 29. Bolt won gold in the 100 meters, 200 and 4x100 relay at the Beijing Games last summer, all in world record times.

He had minor surgery on his left foot to remove thorns that he stepped in as he got out of the car.

After Manchester, Bolt will next run in Toronto at the Festival of Excellence meet June 11.
