“After the excitement of the past few weeks at the World T&F (Track & Field) Championships in Beijing I have decided not to race again in 2015,” Bolt wrote on his Facebook page.

The 29-year-old swept all three sprint titles for the fifth time at a major global championships going back to the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Bolt will now concentrate on the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games.

“I am already thinking about next year and the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio where I will attempt to defend my titles in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m,” Bolt added.

“I will enjoy a short break from training now to recharge before resuming background training next month.”

Bolt’s decision means he will miss Friday’s Diamond League finale in Brussels where he was due to race in the 200 meters.
