Jamaican sprint superstar Usain Bolt has hit back at claims that he described the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games as "a bit s***".

Usain Bolt telling royalty how 'shit' the Games are... possibly

Asked if he was having fun in Scotland he is reported by the Times to have responded, "not really".

However, the Olympic champion has hit back at the claims through Twitter:

The six-time Olympic champion arrived in Glasgow last Saturday morning and, at a press conference in the main press centre, confirmed he would be running the 4x100 metres relay heats on Friday as well as in the sprint relay final on Saturday, the final day of athletics competition.

Bolt confirmed he would be staying in the athletes' village but added that he would be spending most of his time in his room.

Bolt has yet to race this year after taking time to recover from a foot injury but said he was in "pretty good shape" and looking forward to getting races under his belt.

He also said he was eager to make his Commonwealth Games debut having missed the Melbourne Games through injury in 2006 and not appearing at the Delhi Games in 2010, which were held in October.
