Usain Bolt training with Borussia Dortmund in two-day trial

Legendary sprinter Usain Bolt has been given a two-day trial with Borussia Dortmund, training alongside the likes of Mario Gotze and Marco Reus.

The 31-year-old Jamaican, who won eight Olympic gold medals during his athletics career, has previously said he wants to pursue a career as a professional footballer after his retirement.

He has always harboured hopes of playing for his beloved Manchester United and was involved in an open training session with Dortmund’s first team on Friday.

Bolt was pictured training in the famous yellow and black colours of the Bundesliga club, enjoying a session with those that were not selected for international duty, including ex-Chelsea forward Andrew Schurrle.

Dortmund, which shares a sponsor with Bolt in sportswear giants Puma, had already said the 31-year-old 100m world record holder could train with the team.

Bolt had also been training with South African side Mamelodi Sundowns in January and will participate in a charity match at Old Trafford in June.
