Eight-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt offered a decent account of himself at Borussia Dortmund training on Friday morning as he managed to nutmeg a defender and score from a Mario Gotze cross during a trial session with the club.

The 100m world record holder scored during a training match with Dortmund after getting on the end of a cross from German World Cup winner Gotze as the Jamaican looks to fulfill his dream of playing professional football.

Bolt was happy with his performance in the session and reiterated that he has genuine ambitions of playing football at a professional level.

“I think overall I will give myself probably a seven out of ten,” Bolt told reporters after the training session. I think I was okay. I did well, it just takes practice now. To put in more work and get fit.

“I wanted to play my best. I wanted to move and give the guys options and I tried my best. I’m really trying to make it professionally, so I have to play at a high level.”

“Hopefully the team welcome me in the near future. I’d like to continue training with them, getting more experience, getting better and hopefully signing. You never know.”
