Bolt finally calls it a day

 Usain Bolt is giving up on his dream of forging a career as a professional footballer following his try-out last year with Australian side Central Coast Mariners.

In remarks reported by Jamaican media outlets on Tuesday, the eight-time Olympic sprint champion said he had drawn a line under his hopes of playing football as a professional. The 32-year-old athletics icon had told reporters last month he had not given up hope of becoming a footballer.

However, at an event in Kingston on Monday, Bolt said he now planned to concentrate on his business career.

“I don’t want to say it wasn’t dealt with properly, but I think we went about it, not the way we should and you learn your lesson, you live and you learn,” he was quoted by Television Jamaica as saying.
