The Olympic athlete turned footballer who had an eight-week trial with Australian side Central Coast Mariners which ended last November, said him and the club could not agree a contract afterwards.

“It was fun while it lasted,” Bolt, who scored twice in a pre-season friendly for the team, said.

The 32-year-old who always had his sight on professional football won multiple Olympic gold medals in London, Beijing and Rio.

Bolt had trained with multiple clubs over the past few years, with Borussia Dortmund and Norweigian side Stromsgodset some of the biggest among them, but his best opportunity came with the Central Coast Mariners of Australia’s A-League.
