​Olympic champion Bolt signs for unknown football team

Olympic gold medalist and sprinting legend Usain Bolt claims that he has completed a deal with a currently unknown football club.

Bolt has never been shy of talking about how much he wants to become a footballer – and he is a massive fan of Manchester United.

While it is unlikely he is signing with the Red Devils, it appears that a lower league team somewhere in Europe may have taken a chance on Bolt given his raw speed and talent.

At 31, Bolt is fairly old to begin a career in football. But he is a special athlete, and it will be interesting to see where he plays and how far he can go in his ambition to play the sport.
