Superstar sprinter Usain Bolt is bolting out of Australia – but Central Coast Mariners insist he will be back soon.
The Jamaican 100m world record holder has been training with the Gosford club in the hope of impressing coach Mike Mulvey enough to land a contract.
He's struggled with his football fitness though and underwhelmed in his first trial game against a local select side last weekend.
Today the club revealed Bolt will leave the country tomorrow to fulfil commercial obligations overseas. He's reportedly headed for France to hook up with a champagne company.
A club statement added: "After completing his first three weeks of training with the Central Coast Mariners, the club wishes to advise that Usain Bolt will be abroad from Sunday, 9 September to Sunday, 16 September for a previously planned commitment.
"This commitment was agreed between Usain Bolt and the Central Coast Mariners before his training period commenced with the club."
