For the second Sunday in succession, Usain Bolt was a figure of isolation in Daegu Stadium. Seven days previously, in the immediate aftermath of his false start disqualification from the 100 metres final, he went pacing off into a quiet alcove at trackside, fuming at his own impetuosity, while the rest of the field chased down the track after the title he had won in world-record time in Berlin in 2009. Had Bolt not jumped the gun, in all probability his rivals would have been running for a silver lining.

They were talking about the twitch in Daegu yesterday but there was no sign of a knee-jerk reaction. The morning after Usain Bolt's disqualification from the World Championship 100m final, close scrutiny of the replay showed a momentary twitch in the "set" position by Yohan Blake immediately before Bolt blatantly false started.

It came like a bolt from the blue to Britain's track and field selectors: a phone call from Germaine Mason on the first night of the World Championship trials in Birmingham on Friday, saying he was in Britain and ready to high jump again. It will be two years today since Mason last competed, at the DN Galan Meeting in Stockholm.

Usain Bolt is back on the European circuit, saying he has learned from his early-season errors and vowing to avoid falling victim to complacency for a second successive summer. "I need to get back to my best," the fastest man on the planet said in Paris yesterday ahead of his appearance in the IAAF Diamond League meeting in the Stade de France tomorrow night. "Tyson [Gay] is not there, but I'm not going to get complacent."

The triple Olympic champion Usain Bolt set the quickest time in the world this season as he eased to victory over 200 metres in last night's Diamond League meeting in Oslo, while Caster Semenya also set her best time of the year but could only finish third behind Halima Hachlaf in the 800m.

Before settling into his starting blocks here last night, Usain Bolt flexed his new Popeye muscles and mouthed to the television camera: "Number one in the world. I'm ready." The fastest man in history was back on the track for the first time in nine months but for the vast majority of the 100-metre race in the annual Golden Gala gathering, the first stop in Europe on the 2011 IAAF Diamond League tour, the beefed-up Bolt was in danger of having sand kicked in his face.
