Bolt To Train With Bundesliga Side!

Record breaking athlete Usain Bolt is known to be a huge fan of football, and he will train with a top Bundesliga side! Can you guess who it is?

The Jamaican athlete, who holds the world-record time in 100 metre sprints, follows football closely, and is a huge fan of Premier League giants Manchester United.

But he won't take his game to the UK. Instead, Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has confirmed that Bolt will soon train with the German side!

"It is not a joke that Bolt will train with us at some point," Watzke told Kicker.

"This decision was made a while ago. Puma chief Bjorn Gulden, who is also part of our board of directors, told me some time ago that Usain had asked him if he could train with us sometime.

"I immediately said that was not a problem and the coach Thomas Tuchel is okay with it as well.

"It will obviously not happen when we have two games in one week, but probably when things are a bit quieter. The team will like it as well."

However, despite Watzke being keen on Bolt training with his club, he has played down suggestions that BVB will offer the athlete a professional contract.

"We do not have to talk about us offering him a contract," he added. "But we feel flattered that he wants to train with us. It is an honour."

Would you like to see Bolt play professional football?
