The world's two fastest men over 100 meters are in Brussels, Belgium ahead of a Diamond league meeting. Usain Bolt has been in front of the camera's and made an astonishing admission, that he's not afraid of defeat.

Bolt showed what a crowd pleaser he is as he held a masterclass for the benefit of some 500 young Belgian athletes. Afterwards, he spoke about his upcoming competition against Jamaican rival Asafa Powell in the 100 meters race in Paris this coming Friday. The two will race against each other for the first time this season in a highly anticipated showdown at the Diamond League meet.

Usain Bolt said, "No, I'm not afraid to be beaten by anybody if I get beaten, the first thing I learned when I started training with Glen Mills is that you have to know how to lose before you can win; so for me, I'm not worried about losing. I don't want to lose, but if I lose all I have to do is go back to the drawing board and just figure out what I did wrong and work on it. But as I said, I'm going to feel confident and go in to win, so I'm going to work hard and stay focused."
