Report: Usain Bolt is considering a career in soccer, set to train with Dortmund – CBS sports.com (blog)
Olympic legend Usain Bolt is considering a post-running career in soccer, according to The Guardian.
The 30-year-old Jamaican is a big Manchester United fan and said he has been talking with people about playing soccer, also saying that he will train with Borussia Dortmund.
He is set to spend two days training with the Bundesliga club in the coming weeks, and will “see what happens.”
Bolt is one of the world’s most iconic sports figures and took home three gold medals this summer at the Rio Olympics. As for soccer, his insane speed would likely see him play on the wing while training, but it’s hard to envision him just jumping from a sprinter to a pro soccer player. But hey, it doesn’t hurt to try.
