Usain Bolt offered contract with Maltese club

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. Bolt chose to take on a career in professional football after retiring from track and field in 2016.

"We have to sit down with the coach and the management and see if we go forward, what's the plan and if they want to sign me or if I need to do more".

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.

Australia's anti-doping authority has defended its decision to test Usain Bolt, after the former Olympic sprint champion questioned why he had been selected while he is on trial with A-League club Central Coast Mariners. "They have been taken over by new owners who have aspirations of Champions League football".

Bolt says he has been told he is being tested as he is an "elite athlete".




The Mariners hierarchy have not been officially informed of any impending exit by Bolt's London-based agent Ricky Simms, despite Valletta's own declaration that a contract is in the offing.

The 32-year-old Jamaican has repeatedly expressed his hope to win a contract ahead of the Mariners' 2018-19 A-League campaign which kicks off this weekend.

According to news.com.au, any formal offer from the club would likely require "a contribution" from Football Federation Australia.

Gallop said there was no chance of using the marquee fund to meet Bolt's contract demands as its objective was to attract proven world-class players.

"Usain Bolt will continue his indefinite training period with the Central Coast Mariners until any further notice", Mariners chief executive Shaun Mielekamp said in a statement on Tuesday.
