Gay, the 100 metres world silver medallist underwent a minor surgery on both sides of his groin in Philadelphia on Friday and his manager Mark Wetmore said he should be able to walk on Saturday.

“The doctor (William Meyers) was really, really happy with the surgery and Tyson should start walking today,” Wetmore was quoted as telling news agency Reuters.

The 27-year-old American who won the world sprint double at the Osaka world championships in 2007, ran most of the season with problem but still managed to finish second behind Jamaican sprint sensation Usain Bolt in a time of 9.71seconds. Bolt won the race in world record of 9.58secs.

    Maurice, you are hilarious.

    I’ve been saying for the past few months, that Tyson must be the only person in human history who actually performs better when injured than when healthy.
