Jamaican sprint legend, Usain Bolt, has revealed that he has quit professional football after failing to agree a contract with Australian side Central Coast Mariners, ESPN reports.
Bolt scored twice in a friendly match for Central Coast Mariners but was unable to agree a contract with the club.
Aside from his time at the Mariners, Bolt trained with Norwegian team Stromsgodset and German giants Borussia Dortmund in his quest to become a professional footballer.
He rejected an offer from Maltese club Valletta shortly before his time with the Mariners came to an end.
Speaking on the experience, he said:“I don’t want to say it wasn’t dealt with properly, but I think we went about it, not the way we should and you learn your lesson, you live and you learn.
“It was a good experience. I really enjoyed just being in a team and it was must different from track and field and it was fun while it lasted.”
The 32-year-old, who won Olympic sprint gold medals in Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic games, said he will now focus on his business endeavours.
“I’m just doing many different things … the sports life is over, so I’m now moving into different businesses, I have a lot of things in the pipeline, so as I say, I’m just dabbling in everything and trying to be a business man now.”
