Bolt takes break from football training

AFP

AFP, SYDNEY: Sprint legend Usain Bolt’s football training has been put on hold after he flew out of Australia for a “previously planned commitment”, his A-League club has said.

The Jamaican superstar is pursuing his long-held dream of playing professional football and arrived in Gosford, 75 kilometres (47 miles) north of Sydney, last month for training with the Central Coast Mariners.

The 32-year-old has been with the A-League side for three weeks and in late August made a 20-minute cameo for the club in a pre-season game.

“Usain Bolt will be abroad from Sunday, 9 September to Sunday, 16 September for a previously planned commitment,” the Mariners said on Saturday.

“This commitment was agreed between Usain Bolt and the Central Coast Mariners before his training period commenced with the club.”

The team did not say where Bolt was travelling to, but Sydney’s Daily Telegraph reported that he was going to France for an event.

Bolt’s arrival has generated excitement on the Central Coast, with some 10,000 people packing the local stadium for his football debut.
