New Delhi: World champion sprinter Usain Bolt, who has often been regarded as one of the fastest man in the world, will now be training with Borussia Dortmund to kick-start a football life after retirement.

Bolt, who will retire after a last race next summer during the World Championships, said that he has been holding ‘genuine’ talks with interested parties about switching sports.

“We’ve genuinely been talking to people,” said the 31-year-old sprinter.

Usain Bolt, who is 6 feet 4-and-a-half, is a avid Manchester United fan and says that it will be a dream come true if he gets to play for the club he loves.

“For me, if I could get to play for Manchester United, that would be like a dream come true. Yes, that would be epic,” Bolt said.

“In my mind, I think I should do a trial and see if they would say: ‘Alright, come on in’ or if they would say: ‘No, you are not any good.’ I think I would be pretty good because I am fit, I am quick, I can control the ball and I understand all of the play,” the Jamaican said.
