CHAMPION sprinter Usain Bolt brought superstar status to Glasgow 2014 as he arrived in the city on Friday, pledging to put on a show for fans when he runs in the Commonwealth Games for the first time.

The world's fastest man paused to strike his trademark lightning bolt pose with Games mascot Clyde, before facing questions from the world's media at a packed press conference at the city's SECC.

Six-time Olympic champion Bolt, who had just flown in from Jamaica via London, said it was "very important" to be competing at his first Commonwealth Games and that he would be taking part in the heats as well as the finals of the men's 4x100m relay for Jamaica.
