World and Olympic men's 100m and 200m champion Usain Bolt will race in the United States vs The World Penn Relays in Philadelphia on April 24, said USA Track and Field on Thursday.

The Jamaican is expected to team up with his compatriots to run the 4x100m relay.

Bolt, the world record holder in both the men's 100m and 200 sprints, was part of the Jamaican world record setting 4X100m relay team at the 2008 Olympic Games in 37.10 seconds.

He and fellow Jamaicans Steve Mullings, Michael Frater and Asafa Powell won the same event at the 2009 World Outdoor Championships with a meet record time of 37.31 seconds.
