Usain Bolt scored his first goals in professional football after being included in the starting line up for Australia’s Central Coast Mariners in a pre-season friendly.
Bolt, who is trying out for a professional contract, scored twice against Macarthur South West United in Sydney.
Bolt put the Mariners 3-0 up in the 55th minute after a strong left-footed finish, celebrating with his trademark ‘Lightning Bolt’ pose.
The Jamaican then capitalised on a defensive blunder by the opposing team to score his second on the 61′ before being replaced with the score at 4-0.
The eight-time Olympic champion, who retired from athletics in 2017, arrived at the Mariners in August in a bid to realise one of his long-term dreams of becoming a pro football player.
