Maltese champions Valletta offer contract to Jamaican sprinter — Usain Bold

Maltese champions Valletta offer contract to Jamaican sprinter — Usain Bold

Usain Bolt was stunned to learn he must take a drugs test despite having retired from athletics and waiting to learn if he will be given a professional contract in football. "Seriously", the 100m and 200m world record holder added.

"So guys, I've retired from track and field looking to become a footballer but look at this", said Bolt, before showing the letter on the video.

"I'm just happy I got the chance and I'm proud of myself".

Usain Bolt's professional football career could be about to truly kick off.

"If they get to that (signing) point then we'll look at what's feasible for us but it can't be for the marquee player fund", he said.

Bolt may be displeased with the notice, it would appear that the Austrailian Anti-Doping Guidelines mean that the FFA is only acting within the rules.

Their legislation defines an athlete as a "person who competes in sport" if "the sport has an anti-doping policy".

The main advice though is to change the messaging options on the console so you only receive messages from friends or no one. Sony has offered no indication of when it will issue a fix to prevent the rogue message from bricking consoles.

The 32-year-old 100 meters world record holder and eight-time Olympic gold medal victor joined Central Coast on trial in August in a bid to win a contract.

He made his case on Friday by scoring two goals for the Mariners in a pre-season friendly.

The self professed Manchester United fan has had trials with clubs in Europe including the 2013 Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund.

Serbian striker Andrija Majdevac, who plays for Balzan, has trained alongside Bolt with the Mariners and featured alongside him in Bolt's first match with a professional side against a Central Coast XI select team in late August.

The sprinter's agent, Tony Rallis, told ESPN that a club in Europe want to sign Bolt on a two year deal and the club in question reportedly have new owners and ambitions of playing Champions League football.

Mifsud returned to Malta with his tail between his legs and severed ties with Valletta last season, so Bolt might end up replacing him if he decides to ship off to the tiny island nation in the Mediterranean.
