Powell jokes with Jamaican journalist

Asafa Powell has been struggling with a groin injury leading up the London 2012 Games, but the former world 100m record holder was clearly in relaxed mood as he spoke to the media.

Powell qualified for the Olympics after finishing third in the Jamaican trials, but was then a doubt due to injury.

When fielding questions from journalists Powell asked a Jamaican journalist to repeat himself due to his accent, a response which was greeted by laughter from all in the room.
