Usain Bolt’s quest to become a professional footballer is over.

The world’s fastest man had been trying to become a professional football player after finishing his sprinting career.

The eight-time Olympic medalist walked out on his two-month trial with A-League strugglers Central Coast last year.

The 32-year-old was unable to agree a contract with the Mariners despite scoring two goals in a trial match.

Bolt has also trained with German giants Borussia Dortmund in his quest to become a professional footballer.

The Jamaican said his focus now was on his business endeavours.

“I’m just doing many different things … the sports life is over, so I’m now moving into different businesses, I have a lot of things in the pipeline.” he said.
