During Usain Bolt’s first start as a professional soccer player, lightning didn’t strike once, but twice.
The Olympic champion sprinter scored the third and fourth goals during the Australian A-League’s Central Coast Mariners’ 4-0 victory over Macarthur South West in a friendly match.
The Jamaican runner, who is with the club for an “indefinite training period,” celebrated the goals with his trademark lightning bolt pose.

The Australian A-League season opens on October 19 and, despite the goals, it remains unclear if the Mariners will offer Bolt a contract.Read the full story at BBC Sport
