Usain Bolt Is Seen Training With Players Of PSL Side, Mamelodi Sundowns In South Africa
Multiple World record-holder in the sprints, Usain Bolt has once again been spotted on the football pitch. This time, he was involved in training sessions of players and technical team of South African League side, Mamelodi Sundowns.
The fastest man ever to race the tracks has since retired from his athletics career and has made no secret of his desire to play professional football soon.
Bolt is seen a lot in the football circles, having publicly declared that he is a huge fan of Manchester United and even recently had a trail with Bundesliga side, Borussia Dortmund.
The eight-time Olympic Gold medalist, however, revealed that breaking into professional football has not been so easy.
He said: “It was a good game, a fun day and I really enjoyed it. I told the coach when I get back to Jamaica I need more training because I’m unfit.
“I told my friends we need to plan a trip to South Africa it’s a beautiful country, I love the vibe here it’s similar to Jamaica in that sense.”
Also, head coach of the Mamelodi side, Pitso Mosiname, said: “Good thing is he’s a free agent! And he can play in a few positions,” Bolt was part of an Athletics South Africa development scheme.”
