The home of triple Olympic champion Usain Bolt was burgled on Tuesday night while the Jamaican sprinter was competing in the Czech Republic, police revealed in Kingston on Thursday.

The burglars entered the property in the St Andrew area of Kingston between midnight and four o'clock in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Bolt's half-brother, Sadeke Bolt, was asleep in the house at the time.

The thieves took around 1,000 US dollars' worth of electrical goods, including a camera, a laptop and mobile phones.

The robbery was reported to the police by Sadeke Bolt and confirmed by Usain's mother, Jennifer.

Bolt was in action in the Czech city of Ostrava on Tuesday and set a year's best time of 9.77 seconds in the 100 meters.
