Mariners to bring Bolt in to train

The eight-time Olympic gold medallist and world-record holder over 100 and 200 metres has previously spent time with Borussia Dortmund, Mamelodi Sundowns and Stromsgodset after retiring from athletics in 2017.

Bolt, who turns 32 later this month, is not guaranteed a deal with the Mariners but has "committed to an indefinite training period with the club".

In quotes published on the team's website, Bolt said: "I am very excited about coming to Australia and would like to thank the owner and management of the Central Coast Mariners for giving me this opportunity.
