Bolt has endured a hectic few weeks since his World Championship exploits
World and Olympic 100m and 200m champion Usain Bolt has opted out of races in China and South Korea later this month because of fatigue.
He was due to run in Shanghai on 20 September and in Daegu five days later.
But the Jamaican, who runs in Greece this weekend, said on his website: "I have been suffering from fatigue.
"After careful discussions with my coach and management team, even with medical advice, we felt it necessary to close the season."
Bolt, 23, will now head home after competing in the 200m at the World Athletics Final in Thessaloniki.
"The season has been long and challenging with the early challenges I faced," he added referring to the minor injuries he suffered in a car crash in April.
"In addition the risk of injury becomes greater and if I compete in the shape I am in, I may be at great risk."
Bolt smashed his own world 100m and 200m records at the World Championships in Berlin in August.
