Usain BoltZurich  - Usain Bolt beat fellow Jamaican Asafa Powell to win the 100 metres at the Golden League meeting in Zurich Friday in 9.81 seconds.

The world and Olympic champion, who set a world record 9.58 seconds 12 days earlier in Berlin, appeared to ease up as he crossed the line.

Bolt and Powell were neck-and-neck over 70 metres but Bolt powered ahead over the last 30 metres, leaving Powell - who had equalled a then-world record of 9.77 in Zurich three years - second on 9.89.  (dpa)
