Athletics legend Usain Bolt, has revealed he will be training with the Borussia Dortmund football club on Friday, the Bundesliga club has announced.
“Bolt is coming!” tweeted the German league club while the Jamaican sprint star wrote “BVB, get ready for Friday #BVBolt #NewLevels @bvb09 @pumafootball,” on his official account.
This important event is said to be a publicity stunt for both the club and the athlete as both Bolt and Dortmund are sponsored by Puma.
The training is scheduled at 1030 local time (0930 GMT) and will be open to the public with huge media interest expected.
Bolt, who holds the world records for the 100m and 200m, had announced last January that he would be training with Dortmund during the current international break. Since retiring from athletics last year, Bolt has made no secret of his dreams to play football.
The Manchester United fan will line up opposite British pop star Robbie Williams in a charity football match at Old Trafford on June 10. Bolt, an eight-time Olympic gold medalist, will captain the Soccer Aid World XI in a match to raise funds for the United Nations Children’s Fund, (UNICEF)
