The 100 metres world record-holder scored his first two goals in professional football on Friday when he started a pre-season game against second-tier Macarthur South West United in Sydney.

"So I asked the lady, 'So why am I getting drug tested if I haven't signed for a club yet?' And she said they told her that all elite athletes have to get tested".

"Usain Bolt broke the record in Beijing (Olympics) in 2008, and I have followed him for the last year-and-a-half on his football journey", Slimen told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

Where do you think Bolt will end up?

The self professed Manchester United fan has had trials with clubs in Europe including the 2013 Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund.

But, despite scoring twice in a friendly on Friday during his debut for Central Coast Mariners - where he is on trial - the 32-year-old is yet to be offered a professional contract by the club. Bolt said in a video he posted on Instagram, holding up a pink slip of paper requesting a blood and urine test.

Sears aims to close up to 150 stores in bankruptcy
In August, it closed 13 Kmart stores and 33 Sears locations, including the Oakland Mall and Jackson Crossing stores. Lampert bought Sears in 2004 and merged it with Kmart, in which he had a controlling stake, the next year.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that the sprinting legend has been offered a professional contract by a southern European club, according to the agent who brought him to Australia.

"It's very much, the ball in the Mariners' court". The Mariners want FFA to contribute to Bolt's multimillion-dollar contract but it is believed he doesn't meet the criteria as a marquee player.

Sunrise presenter David "Kochie" Koch has sparked quite a discussion on social media after he made a "slavery" remark during a segment about Usain Bolt.

"They would get something good out of it, yeah", the Sunrise correspondent replied.

Bolt - who retired from track and field in 2017 - has been training with A-League outfit the Mariners since August.
