LONDON (AP) -- The Latest on the Rio Games (all times local to Rio de Janeiro):

11:00 p.m.

Usain Bolt has touched down in Rio de Janeiro, ready to fine-tune his preparations for another bid at an Olympic double in the 100- and 200-meter sprints.

The 29-year-old Jamaican has won six Olympic gold medals — the 100, 200 and sprint relays at Beijing in 2008 and at London in 2012 — and is the undisputed star of track and field.

The official website of the Rio Games noted Bolt's arrival on a flight from London with the headline: "The main man has landed."

The Olympics formally begin with the opening ceremony on Aug. 5, and the track program starts Aug. 12. Bolt is set to open his program in preliminaries of the 100 on Aug. 13.


5:42 p.m.

When the New England Patriots reported for training camp on Wednesday, Nate Ebner wasn't with them.

The special teams player has taken a leave of absence to play for the U.S. Olympic rugby team.

"It's a great opportunity for him to follow his passion, participate in the Olympic Games," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. "We're pulling for him to bring back something around his neck."

Ebner played rugby but not football in his first two years at Ohio State before walking onto the football team as a junior. He was selected by the Patriots in the sixth round of the 2012 draft and has appeared in 57 NFL games, mostly on special teams.

Patriots special teams captain Matthew Slater noted that Ebner's father was a college rugby player. Jeff Ebner was murdered during an attempted robbery in 2008.

"That connection with father and son is bigger than sport itself," Slater said. "I know this means a great deal to him and we're all excited for him."

Slater said he's in the market for an Ebner rugby jersey.
