Trinidad:

Jamaican sprint star Usain Bolt said he was happy to have blown away the cobwebs after winning his comeback race following a nine-month lay-off.

The 24-year-old world record holder was a little ragged but still proved too hot for compatriot Asafa Powell as he claimed Golden Gala honours here in 9.91sec.

Powell finished second in 9.93 as Frenchman Christophe Lemaitre took third in 10sec dead.

Bolt admitted he wasn't entirely happy with his performance but said at least he'd come through the race unscathed.

And despite showing off his new brawn, he said it was too early to tell what effect that would have on his performances.

"I don't think I should judge (Thursday), I was a little bit nervous," he said.
