LONDON - Six-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt clocked a season best time of 9.58 seconds to win the men's 100 meters of the Anniversary Games at London's Olympic stadium on Friday.

The Jamaican, who retained the 100m, 200m and 4X100m Olympic titles here last year, overcame a shaky start to take a comfortable victory.

American Mike Rodgers was second in 9.98, with Bolt's compatriot Nesta Carter third in 9.99.

"The crowd here is unbelievable," Bolt said. "They're wonderful. It's good to be back here. I've got a lot of love for this stadium and this crowd," Bolt said.

"I'm feeling good. It was nice to get the win and I'm confident going into Moscow (world championships)."

Bolt will also run the men's 4X100m relay on Saturday, when Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis-Hill, two Britons who won gold medals in last year's Olympics, will also show up.

Ennis-Hill, who has been troubled with an Achilles injury throughout the season, is set to compete in the long jump and 100m hurdles while Farah will compete in the 3,000m.
