Usain Bolt has confirmed this year’s Olympics will be his last, snuffing out the possibility of extending his career to the 2020 games in Tokyo.

The Jamaican sprint king had raised the prospect of prolonging his Olympic career in January after revealing that his coach Glen Mills had suggested his fitness would carry him through to Japan.

However, Bolt told AFP subsidiary SID in an interview that the curtain would come down on his Olympic career in this year’s games in Rio de Janeiro, where he is targeting three more gold medals.

Bolt, meanwhile, reiterated his desire to make more record-breaking history before he retires, saying that he is determined to become the first man to go below 19 seconds for the 200 metres.
