Borussia Dortmund CEO confirms Usain Bolt will train with club

Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has confirmed Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt will train with the club.

Bolt, 30, revealed the news in an interview on Saturday in which he also reiterated his hope to play for Manchester United, the team he supports.

"We've decided this some time ago," Watzke told Sport Bild. "Puma CEO Bjorn Gulden, who is a member of our board, has told us that Usain is highly interested in practising with us. For us that's no problem. Our coach Thomas Tuchel likes the idea as well.

"Of course he won't visit us in an important week with Champions League matches, but maybe in the preseason. We are delighted and take this as an honour."

Bolt is a nine-time Olympic gold medallist having competed in the 2008, 2012 and 2016 games, winning the 100 metres, 200 metres and 4x100m relay in each.
