Usain Bolt has admitted he is keen on pursuing a career as a footballer
when he retires from sprinting. The nine-time Olympic gold medal winner
will call time on his track and field career following the World
Championships in London next year.
And Bolt, 29, who last month trained with Borussia Dortmund, wants to be a footballer when he hangs up his running spikes.
Speaking to the BBC on Monday morning, he said: “It’s something that I’m
looking into. I might do a few trials. I want a trial. I don’t want to
actually just jump into it. You know, [I want to] get some training in,
learn a few things. I think I’d be pretty good.”
Asked what his favoured position would be, Bolt responded: “A winger or a striker. Use my speed, you know what I mean?”
