Jamaica’s eight-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt retired last year following the world championships of track and field in London.

Bolt had been signalling his intention to hang up his spikes for good for a long time prior to the championships.

His departure from the sport has left a deep void as many fans continue to plead with the eleven-time World Champion to make a return.

And since retiring, the world’s fastest man has firmly maintained that he is content with his decision.

However, during a recent interview with TMZ Sports, Bolt said the “door is open” for him to make a return and compete in the 2020 Olympics. 

Bolt said:

“I don’t think so….but when I see competition I definitely feel like I want to.”

“I don’t have the urge right now. Maybe when it comes around to the Olympics you never know … but right now I don’t.”

Bolt has shifted focus to achieving his goal of becoming a professional footballer. Last month Bolt took part in a training session with some of the world’s best football players at Borussia Dortmund in Germany. He is currently scheduled to have an additional three weeks of training with the club.
