Legendary sprinter Usain Bolt has signed with a football club. However, the eight-time Olympic Games gold medallist said he won’t disclose the team until Tuesday (27 February).
“I’ve just signed for a football team. Find out who it is on Tuesday 27th February,” said Bolt, in a short video message on social media.
Bolt, who brought his glittering sprint career to an end following the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London, has frequently talked up his footballing prowess and revealed last month he was set for a trial with Borussia Dortmund in March.
The 31-year-old Jamaican has also repeatedly expressed an interest in turning out for Premier League giants Manchester United, the club he supports, while he also recently offered his services to David Beckham’s new Major League Soccer franchise, Futbol Miami.
