New Delhi: Jamaican legend Usain Bolt, who has won a record nine Gold medals in the history of Olympics, is all set try his hands at football! Yes, you read that right!
Time and again, Bolt has expressed his desire to represent Manchester United – which remains to be his favourite football club. But in an interview to The Guardian on Saturday, Bolt confirmed that he was all set to train with Borussia Dortmund and will soon spend two days training with Thomas Tuchel's squad in Germany.
Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke also confirmed the news.
"We've decided this some time ago," Watzke told Sport Bild. "Puma CEO Bjorn Gulden, who is a member of our board, has told us that Usain is highly interested in practising with us. For us that's no problem. Our coach Thomas Tuchel likes the idea as well.
"Of course he won't visit us in an important week with Champions League matches, but maybe in the preseason. We are delighted and take this as an honour."
Bolt is widely regarded as one of the greatest Olympians, where he completed a rare 'treble-treble' by winning Gold medals in 100 metres, 200 metres and 4x100m relay at Rio.
