Olympic 100m champion Lamont Marcell Jacobs will return to competitive action in Berlin in February. The 27-year-old hasn’t raced since the August Tokyo Games.
He has missed five Diamond League events, but competes at the Berlin indoor meet on 4 February.
His manager Marcello Magnani previously said injury was not a factor in Jacobs’ decision to take a break, but the time off is a preventative measure.
Jacobs, who only switched from long jump in 2018, became the first Italian to win the men’s 100m Olympic gold with his success in Tokyo.
