Usain Bolt is training with Norwegian side Stromsgodset with a view to becoming a professional footballer, Verdens Gang report.

The 31-year-old Jamaican, who won eight Olympic gold medals, trained with the club in Drammen, 40km south-west of Oslo, on Wednesday and hopes to play in a friendly against the club’s under-19 side.

“I want to try to get better, to work as hard as I can, play as much as I can. Maybe a club will see something and decide to give me a chance,” said Bolt, who retired from athletics last year.

Bolt has been given the shirt number 9.58 — his world record time for the 100 metres — to wear during his time at the club and Stromsgodset sporting director Jostein Flo said that he may get a chance to play in a game to show what he can do.

He added that the Stromsgodset players were surprised to find the world’s fastest man in their dressing room.

“We told them a player was coming to try out and that he was damn fast — the door opened, and Bolt came in. It was a shock for them, they couldn’t believe it.”

Manchester United fan Bolt also trained with Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund in March, and featured as a player in special editions of Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer 2018.
