At the 2016 Olympics, the super-sprinter Usain Bolt wants to win three more gold medals. But the Jamaican will have finished his sporting career after the 2017 World Championships in Athletics in London at the latest.
The 29-year old could however remain on our screens - as an actor. “I’m seriously considering it”, Bolt told Playboy.
The world record holder for the 100m and 200m sprints, who turned up the heat at the Olympic press conference in Rio with a racy appearance surrounded by samba dancers, named the British actor Jason Statham from action films such as “The Transporter” and “Crank” as his acting hero.
Bolt, an avid football fan, could also see himself kicking a ball around professionally. He has no offers as of yet, “but I am sure that I could get one if I tried”, said the multi-talented Bolt.
The Jamaican has already been a guest at FC Bayern in Munich more than once, for the first time in 2010 (see Facebook video).
Yet his biggest dream is to play in the jersey of hisfavorite club, Manchester United. Plans for Bolt to play for Manchester United in a friendly against FC Sevilla three years ago fell through because of the sprinter’s other commitments.
Whatever he does next, Bolt should be remaining in his role as brand ambassador for Puma.
