Eight-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt is in talks for a trial to play football in Australia.
The 31 year-old Jamaican former sprinter is negotiating a six-week stint with the Central Coast Mariners, a team in the country’s A-League competition.
Mariners chief executive, Shaun Mielekamp said the club had spent four months pursuing Bolt, and a season-long deal could be imminent.
Football agent Tony Rallis also revealed that a deal had been agreed “in principle”.
Mr Rallis, who has been involved in the deal as well, told newsmen that negotiations have reached advanced stages over Bolt’s pay.
