Usain Bolt Retires From Football


Usain Bolt has admitted defeat in his bid to become a professional footballer.

Olympic sprint great, Bolt, spent time with the Central Coast Mariners in Australia but despite scoring in a friendly, he did not do enough to win a contract.

The Jamaican, who is an avid Manchester United fan, and also trained with Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund and Norwegian club Stromsgodset, said his experience in football had been “fun while it lasted”.

“I don’t want to say it wasn’t dealt with properly, but I think we went about it, not the way we should and you learn your lesson, you live and you learn,” he said.

“It was a good experience. I really enjoyed just being in a team and it was different from track and field and it was fun while it lasted.”

Bolt’s finest moment on a football pitch came in October when he started for the Mariners in a friendly and scored a brace of goals.

The multiple Olympic champion, who won gold medals in Beijing, London and Rio, will now focus on his business ventures.
