Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt says he is ready to "wow" the London 2012 Olympics and put on a "great show" for the city.

The triple Olympic gold medallist looked in confident mood as he modelled his nation's new Olympic kit on the catwalk during a photocall at Village Underground in London on Friday. Bolt also danced alongside the new kit's designer, Cedella Marley.

Having returned to form to win the 100m in 9.76 seconds in Rome on Thursday and record his quickest time since smashing the world record in Berlin in 2009, the 25-year-old has set his sights on achieving more glory in London this summer.

"I'm really looking forward to competing here. I haven't competed in London in a while so I'm really looking forward to the Games.

"I know all the Jamaicans living here (in the UK) are really looking forward to it also.

"I'm just competing to put on a great show as always and I've explained that at the end of the day I just want to wow people after these Olympics (in London) so I'm looking forward to it."
