Usain Bolt in talks for soccer trial with Australia's Central Coast Mariners

    Usain Bolt attends the Russia 2018 World Cup final between France and Croatia at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

    (CNN)The world's fastest man isn't ready to slow down just yet.

    After retiring from competitive athletics in 2017, former sprinter Usain Bolt is turning his hand -- or foot -- to professional football and is in negotiations to participate in a six-week trial with Australian A-League club Central Coast Mariners.
    "The Central Coast Mariners remain committed to discussions with the 'world's fastest man' and his management team, regarding what role the Club may play in Bolt's burning ambition to become a professional footballer," the club said in a statement.
      It added that the Jamaican superstar is far from pulling on the club's colors in a competitive match -- that's dependent on his performance over the six-week trial. "No contract is guaranteed," the statement added.
      The Olympian is hoping to make his dreams of playing professional soccer a reality with the New South Wales club after a stint training with Borussia Dortmund in Germany's top division last month.
      According to a Bundesliga report, he impressed with the German side, scoring "a wonderfully-taken headed goal (and) also a magical nutmeg that delighted the enthralled spectators."
