London, May 18 (ANI): Usain Bolt stormed to a world's best of 14.35 seconds over 150 meters on the streets of Manchester last night.

Bolt, the reigning world record holder at 100m and 200m, left the rest of the field - including British sprinter Marlon Devonish comfortably behind, The Sun reports.he Olympic champion now insists he can lower his own 100m world mark of 9.69 seconds - set in Beijing last summer - to 9.4sec.

Jamaican Bolt almost had to pull out of last night's race in Deansgate when he crashed his car into a ditch back home on April 29.

He only returned to full training last week having had stitches in his left foot.

But in his first outing this year, he covered the first 100m in an astonishing 9.9sec.

And he went on to smash the previous best of 14.8sec for the 150m set by Italian Pietro Mennea in 1983 - when Bolt was not even born.

Bolt, 22, admitted: "I didn't expect to run that fast. It's my first major run of the season and I was happy just to come out and run. I don't even think I'm in the best of shape and I still have a lot of work to do." (ANI)
