Bolt hits out on Instagram over drug test order

Central Coast Mariners’ Usain Bolt in action

Central Coast Mariners’ Usain Bolt in action

The club who has offered Usain Bolt a two-year contract to spearhead their charge to the UEFA Champions League has been revealed.

"A champion is always welcome and at Valletta FC we believe nothing is impossible", said Slimen, adding that he hoped Bolt could pave the way for more athletes to switch sports.

Maltese champions, Valletta, said they hoped to sign the eight-time Olympic gold medallist in time for him to participate in their Super Cup match on December 13 against Balzan.

It remains to be seen whether the former Olympic champion will be offered a professional contract to play for the Mariners but Bolt is hopeful of fulfilling his dream of becoming a pro footballer after retiring from track and field past year.

The 32-year-old retired from the track to chart a new course for himself playing football - a dream he has nursed for a long time.

Reigning Maltese champions Valletta FC reportedly offered Bolt a two-year contract, but Bolt has said before he'd like to chase an A-League contract.

The A1, the main motorway running through Portugal, was temporarily blocked by a fallen tree, authorities said. This media house does not correct any spelling or grammatical error within press releases and commentaries.

The eight-time gold medallist reacted with surprise after receiving a notice for a drugs test on Monday, just days after scoring his first goals in a friendly for the club.

The on-air gaffe occurred as sports reporter Mark Beretta was reading a story - alongside co-host Sam Armytage, Natalie Barr and Koch - following reports Olympic legend Bolt could leave the Central Coast Mariners Football Club.

But it appears Bolt's unique situation comes under the Australia's anti-doping authority (Asada) testing protocol as athletes may be subject to collection both in and out of competition.

Bolt, the world record holder for the 100m sprint, retired from athletics past year to pursue a career in professional football.

Seriously. I asked the lady, 'why am I getting drug tested?

Bolt does not yet have a contract with the Australian club ahead of the start of the A-League season this Friday.
