Britain's Olympic and world long jump champion Greg Rutherford has pulled out of Saturday's Glasgow International Grand Prix with a "minor injury".

The 29-year-old described the problem as "a small muscle tear" after feeling pain while warming-up in Albuquerque, USA, last Friday.

Rutherford is hoping to compete at the Indoor British Championships in Sheffield on 27-28 February.

He had been set to face Paralympic long jump champion Markus Rehm in Glasgow.
