Eight-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt is training with Norwegian top-flight football team Stromsgodset.The Jamaican sprinter, 31, is scheduled to play a training match against Norway Under-19s in his week at the club.Bolt, the 100m and 200m world record holder, has already trained with Borussia Dortmund and South African club Sundowns this year.
"Maybe a club will see something and decide to give me a chance," said Bolt, who is preparing for a charity game.He will captain a team of celebrities and footballers at the Soccer Aid match for Unicef on 10 June at Old Trafford."He is a good football player, otherwise he would not have been training with us," said Stromsgodset director of football Jostein Flo.Flo said Bolt had been given shirt number 9.58 - his world record time for the 100m.The Manchester United fan has spoken previously about wanting to get into professional football, having retired from athletics last year.His arrival at Stromsgodset was a surprise for the players.Flo, a former Sheffield United striker, said: "We told them a player was coming to try out and that he was damn fast - the door opened, and Bolt came in. It was a shock for them, they couldn't believe it."He is one of the greatest athletes throughout all ages, and of course we can learn a lot from him."His presence will undoubtedly be a great inspiration for players, coaches, and the whole club."
