"I'm disappointed not to be able to compete in Paris and Lausanne. I love running at these meetings but at the moment I am unable to compete at 100%. I look forward to getting back into full training as soon as possible," Bolt said in a statement.

The Paris meeting is on Saturday with Lausanne the following Thursday.
