Jamaican sprinter and world record holder Asafa Powell has been hit by a knee injury and has been ruled out of the Sydney Athletics Grand Prix on Saturday.

The 25-year-old who arrived in Melbourne on Sunday went "down under" with the injury, but the news only became in the focus Monday morning when the press arrived at Melbourne’s Olympic Park to watch the Jamaican scheduled practice session.

Powell, who holds the world record over the 100m with a sizzling 9.74 seconds "is believed to have fallen down stairs at his Kingston home and cut his left knee."

The Jamaican Commonwealth Games champion who picked up a bronze medal at the World Championships in Osaka, Japan last summer, is hoping to recover at the Melbourne Grand Prix at Olympic Park on February 21.

He is expected have a session about the matter and talk about his goals for the season with the media at a conference Tuesday.
