Usain Bolt retires from football

Usain Bolt’s quest to become a professional footballer is over. The world’s fastest man had been trying to become a professional football player after completing his sprinting career.

The eight-time Olympic medalist walked out on his two-month trial with A-League strugglers Central Coast last year. The 32-year-old was unable to agree to a contract with the Mariners despite scoring two goals in a trial match.

Bolt was also trained with German giants Borussia Dortmund to become a professional footballer. The Jamaican said his focus was on his business endeavours. “I’m just doing many different things … the sports life is over, so I’m now moving into different businesses, I have a lot of things in the pipeline.” he said.
