Usain Bolt ran his most impressive race of the year so far in Paris on Saturday, breaking the fastest time set by anyone in 2013.

Bolt won the 200m, running a time of 19.73 seconds, at the Diamond League event as he blasted clear of the rest of the field.

And the Jamaican superstar insists that he is hitting his best form in time for the World Championships in Moscow.

"All is building up toward a great world championships, you will see a big show there, it will be the climax. And I want to be ready for that," Bolt said.

Bolt won the race ahead of a stellar field that included second-placed Warren Weir and home favourite Christophe Lemaitre, who ended up claiming third place.

The two-time Olympic treble-winning gold medalist had been quiet by his own standards this season.

His lack of form led to pundits questioning whether his invincible status had been breached by the likes of Tyson Gay, but this world-lead time has fired a warning shot back at the rest of the contenders for his crown.
