Wellesley Bolt told ITV News his son was enjoying the weather at Glasgow's Commonwealth Games.

The fastest man in the world's father said he was looking forward to seeing him electrify the crowd later when he takes part in the men's 4x100m relay.

Speaking to ITV Scotland Correspondent Debi Edward, Bolt senior said he spoke to his son yesterday and he was anxious to finally put the allegations he was not enjoying the Games to bed.

He said:

Yes. He is enjoying himself. I spoke to him yesterday and he said he was enjoying the weather.

Welleseley said he found the weather a little cold at times but that was not stopping him from enjoying the Games. The whole Bolt family will be supporting Usain later.

Wellesley and Jennifer still live in the tiny town of Sherwood Content in Jamaica, where Usain grew up.

Bolt reacted angrily to allegations made by a journalist from The Times that he said he was not enjoying the Commonwealth Games, as they were a "bit s***" and did not compare to the Olympics. The journalist stands by her story as vehemently as he denies making the comments.

Since the story broke, Bolt has been putting in a lot of appearances around the Commonwealth Games, and said they were "awesome".

The Commonwealth Games said they took Bolt at his word and denied his comments negatively impacted the Games.
