Usain Bolt Takes Break From Football

Like seriously? That didn't take long.

Jamaican Sprint legend Usain Bolt has put a halt to his football training after he flew out of Australia for a “previously planned commitment”, his A-League club has said.

This comes bare a month after the Jamaican superstar arrived in Gosford, 75 kilometers (47 miles) north of Sydney for training with the Central Coast Mariners in pursuit of his long-held dream of playing professional football.

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.

The world’s fastest man has struggled with his fitness since arriving but said last month that he hoped to be ready to go by the start of the A-League season in mid-October.
