Bolt, an eight-time Olympic gold medallist and world-record holder in the 100 metres, trained behind closed doors on Thursday, and United States global Christian Pulisic told ESPN FC he had been delighted to work with the 31-year-old.

Athletics legend Usain Bolt has been training with Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in Germany.

Retired Olympic champion Bolt mixed it with the likes of Marcel Desailly, Patrick Kluivert and Christian Karembeu in Basel, Switzerland - under the watchful eye of the Special One.

The 31-year-old Bolt insists he is deadly serious about starting a new career - at an age when most footballers are hanging up their boots.

Earlier this month, Bolt announced he will captain a World XI at Old Trafford in a UNICEF charity game in June 2018.

Forging a football career has always been sprinting superstar Bolt's ambition after hanging up his running spikes, with Dortmund the first club to offer him a chance to show his skills. I'm a very determined person when I want something so I'm going to go there and do my best.


"I've heard a lot about the fans here - that really was an experience".

"I think it worked out quite well, he felt comfortable, we were able to integrate it well".

He took part in another behind closed doors on Thursday.

Following his retirement from athletics Bolt said he wanted to celebrate with the France global in England, sharing a Nando's and a Guinness with him, per Ed Gleave for the Daily Star. I wanted to move and give the guys options and I tried my best.

In one photo he was seen taking instructions from the 2014 World Cup final goalscorer Mario Gotze.

"I think overall I will give myself probably a seven out of ten", Bolt said.
