- Jamaican sprint superstar Usain Bolt set a new best time of 9.98sec for the rarely run 100m indoors at Warsaw's national football stadium on Saturday.

The Olympic champion and world record holder eclipsed the previous best mark for the distance of 10.05 set by Namibian Frankie Fredericks in 1996.

The Warsaw stadium had its roof closed for the event.
