Usain Bolt, aka the fastest man of all time, has jetted over to Australia to chase his another sporting dream - to become a professional football player.
"I've said all along this is for real and I'm here to show what I can do", he said. Central Coast Mariners supporters will be hoping that it is more than that, and that the swift Kingston native will help add firepower to a side that finished bottom of the 10-team league last season with a derisory count of 28 goals in 27 matches. "The Central Coast Mariners have given me a great opportunity and I'm just going to come here and do my best".
Wearing a Mariners scarf after landing in Sydney following a 14-hour flight from Los Angeles, Bolt told reporters: "I've said all along this is for real and I'm here to show what I can do".
