Jamaica’s eight-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt recently revealed that he has agreed to sign for a football club.
He made the revelation on Sunday (Feb 25) via a social media post.
Bolt has always expressed a desire to play football professionally after retiring from athletics.
He was scheduled to go on trial with Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund next month and recently trained with the South African side Mamelodi Sundowns.
But the 31-year-old is an avid supporter of Manchester United and last month he revealed that he has had talks with the club’s former manager Sir Alex Ferguson about possibly joining the team.
In an interview with Express, the 31-year-old said: “One of my biggest dreams is to sign for Manchester United.
“I’ve spoken to Alex Ferguson and I told him he needs to put in a good word. He told me if I get fit and ready, he will see what he can do.”
As one of the most marketable athletes in the world, Bolt would undoubtedly have the support of his legion of fans across the globe.
Bolt will reveal the club he has signed for on Tuesday February 27.
