LONDON — Well, he's not bad with his feet.
Everyone wants to know what the world's fastest man is going to do after the London Olympics. How about playing a little soccer for Manchester United?
Usain Bolt, who won a gold medal in the 100 meters Sunday, said afterward that he would like to play for one of the Premier League's heavyweights.
"People think I am joking, but if (United coach) Alex Ferguson called me up and said, 'OK, let's do this, come and have a trial,' it would be impossible for me to say no," Bolt said.
But the Jamaican sprinter said he wouldn't do it unless he believed he had the skills to be a factor on the field.
"I would not take up the challenge if I didn't think I was good enough," Bolt said. "I am in Britain for a few more days. If Alex Ferguson wants to give me a call, he knows where I am."
