Bolt⚡ Declares His 'Sports Life is Over'😞

  |   Sports

The Jamaican, 32, spent two months training with Australian side Central Coast Mariners, but left in November after the club failed to find financial backing for a professional deal.

But he added: "You live and you learn. It was a good experience - I really enjoyed just being in a team."
