World’s fastest man Usain Bolt has put on hold his football training after he flew out of Australia for a “previously planned commitment”, his A-League club has said.

Bolt is chasing his dream of playing professional football and arrived in Gosford, 75 kilometers (47 miles) north of Sydney, last month for training with the Central Coast Mariners.

“Usain Bolt will be abroad from Sunday, 9 September to Sunday, 16 September for a previously planned commitment,” the Mariners said on Saturday.

“This commitment was agreed between Usain Bolt and the Central Coast Mariners before his training period commenced with the club.”
