Usain Bolt fumes over drug test notice

Usain Bolt fumes over drug test notice

His agent in Australia has revealed that Bolt has been offered a two-year contract from an unnamed European club who have "aspirations of Champions League football".

The 100m world record-holder quit athletics previous year and is yet to be offered a deal by Australia's Central Coast Mariners, where he is now on trial.

The Mariners also name English Premier League side Everton as a player development partner and have a similar partnership with Maltese Premier League side Balzan FC.

Bolt retired from athletics in 2017, since which he has trained with Borussia Dortmund and made clear his desire to earn a professional deal.

Speaking after Bolt's two-goal display on Friday, Mariners' chief executive Shaun Mielekamp stressed that "it was too early to tell" if the club would offer him a full-time deal.

Fifa 98's Usain Bolt is seen during an exhibition football match between France's 1998 World Cup's French football national team and FIFA 98 composed with former global players, to mark the 20th anniversary of France's 1998 World Cup victory, on June 12, 2018 at the U Arena in Nanterre, near Paris.

The demand for the out of competition test - to collect urine and blood - appears to have been issued by Football Federation Australia.

Meanwhile, Bolt objected to receiving notice of a need to take a drugs test from Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) in a video he posted on Instagram.

"I'm keen to be a Mariner, to play my best and get into the team".

'I wasn't really focusing on Bolt too much, I was more anxious about Ross McCormack and also Jordan Murray who I played with before he joined the Mariners, ' Symons told ESPN.

"I'm not even a professional footballer yet, seriously".
