LONDON (AP) - The trial has begun for a man who prosecutors say got into the stadium for the Olympic 100-meter final without a valid ticket before shouting at Usain Bolt and throwing a plastic bottle onto the track.

Ashley Gill-Webb's trial started Thursday in London near Olympic Stadium and five months after the race.

He is accused of using an old ticket to enter the stadium and then shouting at Bolt, "Usain I want you to lose. Usain you are bad." He added an obscenity and tossed a plastic beer bottle.

Gill-Webb denies the charges. He is charged with intending to cause harassment, alarm or distress by threatening, abusive or disorderly behavior.

Bolt won the gold medal in 9.63 seconds.
