Usain Bolt before the England v Soccer Aid World XI Old Trafford Manchester Britain

He remains the world record holder at the 100m - with a time of 9.58 seconds - and the 200m, where he has clocked 19.19 seconds.

World speed ex-astro Usain Bolt reached an agreement to train with the Central Coast Mariners of the Australian Premier League football league, the entity announced today.

'Watch out, I'm on the way - remember I don't take limits'.

His sprinting dominance was punctuated with a "triple double", clinching golds in the 100 and 200 meters in Beijing, London and Rio.

Both Bolt and the A-League side have been in talks for some weeks with the eight-time Olympic gold medalist keen to become a professional footballer.

This resulted in OpenAI Five predicting a lower chance of winning of the match - just 2.9 percent, in fact. The human vs machine challenge began with a warmup match against the audience, which OpenAI won easily .

"I am very excited about coming to Australia and would like to thank the owner and management of the Central Coast Mariners for giving me this opportunity", the 31-year-old Jamaican said.

Now that his career as the fastest man in the world has ended, Usain Bolt is making another run at becoming a professional soccer player.

The Mariners have insisted that the extended trial is not a commitment to a contract, but want to give the Jamaican a chance.

Bolt, who retired from athletics a year ago following the World Championships in London, has previously trained with Borussia Dortmund, Norwegian team Strømsgodset and South African side Mamelodi Sundowns FC.

The club's CEO Shaun Mielekamp said having Bolt visit would align with the Mariners' philosophy of being an innovative, entertaining and community-minded sports brand.

"It is important that we don't get too caught up in the hype of possibilities, but ... we are committed to building a team that will win matches and instill belief, hopefully Usain can help us on this mission", Mielekamp said.

Though Melbourne Victory might disagree after signing star Japanese midfielder Keisuke Honda Monday.

The Mariners play in the Sydney suburb of Gosford to a capacity crowd of just over 20,000.

"I'm looking forward to the opportunities to prove that with hard work anything is possible".
