"I know that it will involve a lot of hard work and training to get to the level required to play and make an impact in the A-League", Bolt said.

He remains the world record holder at the 100m - with a time of 9.58 seconds - and the 200m, where he has clocked 19.19 seconds.

Bolt will train ‘for an indefinite period' with the rest of the staff, the team said in a statement, adding the agreement does not guarantee him a contract as a professional football player, but gives him the opportunity to achieve his great goal of being part of a club.

Now that his career as the fastest man in the world has ended, Usain Bolt is making another run at becoming a professional soccer player.

"I'm looking forward to the opportunities to prove that with hard work anything is possible".

The Marlins had tied the game in the seventh on a two-run homer by Derek Dietrich and a solo shot by Justin Bour two outs later. Martinez ripped a hard line drive up the middle, just out of the reach of a leaping Gleyber Torres .

Fifa 98's Usain Bolt controls the ball during an exhibition football match between France's 1998 World Cup's French football national team and FIFA 98 composed with former global players, to mark the 20th anniversary of France's 1998 World Cup victory, on June 12, 2018 at the U Arena in Nanterre, near Paris.

Mielekamp didn't rule out the possibility of Central Coast fielding Bolt in a pre-season friendly if he is deemed fit enough to play.

Legendary Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, known for his love for football, will join Australian club Central Coast Mariners for an "indefinite training period".

Bolt, 31, has already trained with Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund, South African club Mamelodi Sundowns and Norway's Stromsgodset.

According to the A-League club, Bolt, an eight-time Olympic gold medallist, will link up with Mike Mulvey's men in Gosford later this month. "We welcome Usain with open arms, and we will always remain grounded and focused on the job at hand". Silva said that while the Central Coast Mariners were offering Bolt more money, the Austin BOLD FC could get him ready for the big leagues.
