Talk exploded that Usain Bolt had accepted a challenge from distance champion Mo Farah last week to meet up for a charity race, but Bolt never actually agreed on anything.

Bolt was asked about it again upon arriving in Moscow for the World Championships (which begin Saturday).

The six-time Olympic sprint champion said he will try to find time to race Farah over 600 meters, according to The Independent.

“We don’t know if it will happen, but we will definitely be thinking about it to see if it possibly could fit in our schedules,” Bolt told the British newspaper. “So we will definitely look into it and see what can happen.”
