Former Jamaican sprinter and 100-metre world-record holder, Usain Bolt, has finally quit football for Rugby.
The eight-time Olympic champion stated that he has accepted a $3 million deal to play rugby for the Wallabies after negotiations to play football for A-League club, Central Coast Mariners, broke down, according to SportingLife.
. “I think I’ll be good at rugby,” Bolt said.
“Holding the ball while running will be much easier than dribbling it at my feet.”
Meanwhile, Michael Cheika, the Wallabies coach, confirmed that the 32-year-old might just be the answer to his team’s recent poor form.
Cheika said: “Usain has once again demonstrated his lightning speed in trial matches.
“I want him on the right wing ASAP.”
