Oh dear, you know Usain Bolt plays too much. His claim of signing to a football team, is actually just for a UNICEF match in which he would be the captain.
Bolt is set to play for a World XI and go head-to-head with an England XI led by Robbie Williams in this year’s Soccer Aid match at Old Trafford on June 10.
It will be the first time Bolt has played at the home of his beloved Manchester United as the eight-time Olympic gold medallist heads a stellar list of stars raising money for Unicef.
The full team line-ups, comprising football and showbiz stars, will be announced in the coming weeks for the charity match, which will take place just four days before the start of the World Cup in Russia and be screened live on ITV.
Bolt said: ‘It is my dream to make it as a professional footballer, so to be able to step out onto the pitch at Old Trafford in June, and play against some of football’s biggest legends is going to be remarkable.
‘I enjoy the thrill of competition in front of a crowd, so Robbie and his England team better watch out as I won’t be going easy on them! I’ve got a pretty special celebration planned for when I score, by the way.
‘My team is going to be unbeatable – and Soccer Aid for Unicef is counting on your support to make a difference to thousands of children around the world. Come and join in the fun!’
