Earlier this year Jamaica’s eight-time Olympic Gold medallist Usain Bolt teased that he had signed with a mystery football club.

It was later revealed that the he was actually teasing his participation in a Soccer Aid 2018 charity game.

The game which took place on Sunday at Old Trafford saw England take on a World XI team captained by Usain Bolt.

Donning a jersey with the number 9.58, Bolt showed glimpses of what he may be capable of once he continues to refine his football skills. 

The encounter saw both teams score three goals a piece during 90 minutes with England eventually coming out on top after winning a penalty shootout.

But Bolt was denied what would have easily been the best goal of the encounter when he produced a superb left-footed strike that hit off the crossbar and came down just slightly behind the goal line. 

Unfortunately, due to the absence of Video Assistant Referee, officials were unable to review Bolt’s shot to award him a much deserved goal for his efforts.

The world’s fastest man was able to get his name on the score-sheet during the penalty shootout.

ITV, who broadcasted the event  live say that so far £5.5million has been raised for Unicef.
