As Borussia Dortmund's chief Hans-Joachim Watzke told Kicker magazine on Sunday that
"It's not a joke, it's not a marketing stunt."
"I immediately said that was not a problem and the coach is okay with it as well.
"It will obviously not happen when we have two games in one week, but probably when things are a bit quieter. The team will like it as well.”
And now it is confirmed that Bolt is all set practice with the Bundesliga side club Borussia Dortmund, as the German sportswear company Puma, who sponsor Bolt and have a representative on Borussia Dortmund's board, have recently designed football boots specifically for the iconic Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt.
The winner of nine Olympic gold medals has repeatedly talked about his desire to play football,
“In my mind, I think I should do a trial and see if they would say ‘Alright, come on in’ or if they would say ‘No, you are not any good’. I think I would be pretty good because I am fit, I am quick, I can control the ball and I understand all of the play,” Bolt said last year.
And now it seems like Bolt will make his dream a reality soon when he starts training with the Bundesliga giant Borussia Dortmund.
As recently Puma tweeted a picture of the boots, which are half orange and half white with a small Jamaican flag and "Bolt" written on them.
"Your boots are ready, Usain Bolt,"
