Usain Bolt says that he plans to return to training with Borussia Dortmund after spending time at the club's facilities.

The eight-time Olympic champion retired as a sprinter earlier in 2017 after the World Championships.

Dortmund - now in third place in the Bundesliga - are without a game this weekend due to the worldwide break, where their return to action on March 31 will see them face off against rivals and league leaders Bayern Munich.

"I wouldn't want to play in a lesser league, I want to play in the top league - this is why I am here", he added.

Here's the first notable moment of Usain Bolt's budding career as a professional soccer player. "It's something that I've used over the years, actually playing with my friends and stuff, so it's something that I'm just looking forward to and we'll see what happens".

This figure is launch by taking the postscript price and multiplying it by the total number of shares outstanding. Truewealth LLC purchased a new position in shares of Tesla in the 4th quarter worth approximately $102,000.

"I think overall I will give myself probably a seven out of ten", Bolt told reporters after the training session.

Jamaican 31-year old runner is about to attend a try-out for German club, and a media event having them sign him might turn out a marketing and merchandising success. "That's why I want to move on to football, because it would be a new challenge".

He may have been with Peter Stoger's team for football reasons, but a few Dortmund players could not help but challenge him to a sprinting competition, only for the legend to knock them back.

According to Carsten Cramer, BVB's sales & marketing executive, Bolt will get "a realistic assessment" of his chances to play for the club during his trial. "You can see that he understands the game". My team is going to be unbeatable - and Soccer Aid for Unicef is counting on your support to make a difference to thousands of children around the world.
