Usain Bolt says he is serious about starting up a soccer career now he has retired from sprinting and believes he could even be good enough to play for Jamaica.

The 31‑year‑old eight‑time Olympic gold medallist currently recovering from a hamstring injury accepted there might be some scepticism but said it had always been his boyhood dream.

Bolt who retired from athletics after August's world championships in London has been invited to spend a week training with the Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund and he plans to take it up.

A keen Manchester United fan, Bolt doubted manager Jose Mourinho would be on the phone any time soon but said he had spoken to the club's former manager Alex Ferguson about his dream.
