ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsOne of the greatest sportspersons of all time, Usain Bolt will always be remembered for his astronomical achievements in the world of athletics. The Jamaican sprint king won multiple Olympic gold medals in London, Beijing and Rio to etch his name in the history books and create a legacy that is unlikely to be overhauled anytime soon. Thus, when Bolt announced his retirement as a sprinter, his fans, in every corner of the world, were undoubtedly overwhelmed by emotions as one of the greatest ever quietly walked into the shadows. But, then came a surprise. More of a joke, at first, which eventually turned out be more of a gimmick. But, Bolt thought otherwise. In fact, he began training with German club Borussia Dortmund before moving to Norwegian side Stromsgodset. But, his best opportunity came with the Central Coast Mariners of Australia's A-League. Appearing in friendlies with the club, Bolt scored a brace in a match in October last year which also earned him an opportunity to sign a contract with the team.

As a result, the Mariners and the 32-year-old star agreed to mutually terminate the trial in early November last year. An offer came from Maltese side Valletta last October, but they couldn't convince the sprint king to join them. Ultimately, unable to find suitors, Bolt has now decided to end his dream of becoming a professional footballer, calling time on his, supposedly, football career. "It was a good experience. I really enjoyed just being in a team and it was different from track and field and it was fun while it lasted,” Bolt said. But, with all due respect to the star athlete, did Bolt's football career ever really begin? Well, that was the question everyone was asking on the social media following his latest announcement. Career???? I done 1 day's work in a bank, never called it a career in banking on my Cv.... get back to stupid commercials — VintageEmery (@TheNormalGooner) January 22, 2019 No surprise that the fastest man in the world had the fastest soccer career — JasonA (@jasonA82189455) January 22, 2019 Only ended because no one wanted to pay his over inflated wages. One club that wanted to sign him just couldn't afford his image rights. Nothing to do with Bolt wanting to pay football, it was all down to money ð¤ð¤ð¤ — spamfiend1970 (@spamfiend1970) January 22, 2019 That was quick. pic.twitter.com/R7N9fv4vWq — The FPL Guy (@TheFPLGuy) January 23, 2019 Not what I wanted to hear about Usain's football — Inopportunesses (@bandraidoir) January 22, 2019 Gets asked to do one drug test and suddenly he quits football?

Did you know the fastest man on earth is now a footballer? Yeah, me neither, but Usain Bolt is out there taking over another sport because why not? Usain Bolt made his debut as a substitute for A-League outfit Central Coast Mariners a couple of months back and now he's scored not one but two goals for a professional football team. There's only one way we can expect him to celebrate anything – with his trademark lightning pose, of course – and he did not disappoint. Here it is, @usainbolt, the footballer, scores his maiden Mariners goal. What a moment!

He joined the Mariners for an “indefinite training period” and also said, “dreams become reality through hard work”. He also added, “My first start and scoring two goals, it's a good feeling. I'm happy I could come here and show the world I'm improving. I'm keen to be a Mariner, to play my best and get into the team.” People on Twitter were also quite impressed. what a time to be alive — Ben Mc (@McElstuff) October 12, 2018 Yep, all the greats!

ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsNow that Usain Bolt has retired, is he considering an alternate career option of becoming an astronaut? View this post on Instagram Zero Gravity is a out of this world experience ððð¾ð¾ @ghmumm #DareWinCelebrate #NextVictory A post shared by Usain St.Leo Bolt (@usainbolt) on Sep 12, 2018 at 11:51am PDT This picture will make you believe that, but it's not true. While we don't know if he'll ever become an astronaut, there's one thing we're sure about that he will be the fastest man wherever he goes. Why do we say that? Because he just defeated French astronaut Jean-Francois Clervoy (the man in blue suit) in a zero-gravity race. The man in black suit is CEO of Novespace and French Interior designer Octave de Gaulle. © Reuters For those scratching their heads in confusion. Bolt wasn't really launched in space, the Olympics champ boarded a special Airbus Zero G plane, where you can experience what it feels like to be in zero gravity. © Reuters Bolt celebrated his victory, not with his signature pose, but by sipping champagne floating in the air. Reportedly, this champagne is crafted by Mumm, for astronauts to enjoy in space. © Reuters In fact, this champagne is designed keeping future space tourism in mind. Clearly, these people are living and dreaming about a world in 3018 and we are sitting waiting watching videos of alien invasion. © Reuters The 32-year-old reportedly felt like a "kid in a candy store" after spending some quality time floating in zero-gravity.
