Nuts and Bolt! Sprint legend grabs double after painful kick

Usain Bolt Bolt retired from athletics in 2017

Usain Bolt has scored two goals on his first start for Australian professional side Central Coast Mariners.

Bolt, the 100 metres world record holder and eight-time Olympic gold medal victor, joined Central Coast on trial in August in a bid to win a contract.

Witnessed by more than 6,000 people at the stadium, Bolt broke into his trademark celebration move after the first goal.

"I think I made some slight mistakes but I'm just happy to get the chance and I'm proud of myself", Bolt told Fox Sports after his withdrawal on 75 minutes.

The partnership with former Leeds and Aston Villa man Ross McCormack and Bolt already has the potential to surpass the pairing of Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe.

Bolt added his second of the evening by taking advantage of some outrageous defending before rolling the ball into an empty net.

Previously, the Jamaican trained with Borussia Dortmund as well as clubs in Norway and South Africa.

He struggled to find his touch in the first half, but marginally improved in the second.

The 100m world-record holder, who is bidding for a professional contract, recovered from a painful kick in the groin to score twice against Macarthur South West United in Sydney.

The A-League season begins next weekend, with Central Coast away to Brisbane Roar on the Sunday.

Bolt's first appearance for the Mariners was on August 31, when he appeared in the 72nd minute and played for 20 minutes.

As you would expect from a sprinter, Bolt has very fast feet, yet he can only play football with his left.

His second goal wasn't quite as impressive as his first, but that didn't stop Usain Bolt cementing his position as a pro footballer with a Fortnite dance.

Bolt said he hoped to sit down with the Central Coast coaching staff next week to discuss his future with the team.

It's hard to know whether any of this will convince the Mariners to now sign Bolt up, or continue to play him in a series of meaningless trial matches while they rack up thousands of views and unprecedented publicity.
