Jamacain sprinter Usain Bolt has run the second-fastest 100m sprint ever, clocking a time of 9.76 seconds at the Jamaica International Invitational.

WWE founder Vince McMahon is to be honoured with a lifetime achievement award at the 53rd annual Promax/BDA conference in New York. McMahon's win continues the award's recognition of those who carved an identity out of convincing people they actually existed, such as Santa Claus, Chinese Democracy and Paula Abdul's sanity.
