Sprint star Usain Bolt to play in Soccer Aid

The record-breaking Jamaican hung up his spikes after last year’s World Championships in London.

Eight-time Olympic champion sprinter Usain Bolt will play in Soccer Aid later this year.

The 31-year-old Jamaican on Sunday announced he was signing for a football team and South African outfit Mamelodi Sundowns hinted it was them by posting a picture on Twitter a day later.

But it was revealed on Tuesday morning that Bolt, who hung up his spikes after the World Championships in London last year, will take part in the star-studded Unicef match on June 10.

Bolt will form part of a World XI which will go head-to-head with singer Robbie Williams’ England XI at Old Trafford.

I’ve got a pretty special celebration planned for when I score, by the way Usain Bolt

The world’s fastest man, a Manchester United fan, has previously spoken of his desire to play football and once had a trial with German side Borussia Dortmund.

Bolt said: “It is my dream to make it as a professional footballer, so to be able to step out onto the pitch at Old Trafford in June, and play against some of football’s biggest legends is going to be remarkable.

“I enjoy the thrill of competition in front of a crowd, so Robbie and his England team better watch out as I won’t be going easy on them!

“I’ve got a pretty special celebration planned for when I score, by the way.”
