Usain Bolt is the fastest man ever to have drawn breath, which is a pretty good thing to be able to write on your CV.

Despite this, and the fact that he probably doesn’t even have a CV, the Jamaican sprinter has always hankered after something even more fulfilling.

In 2012, he claimed he’d had talks about the idea of having a trial for Manchester United. Sadly, Sir Alex Ferguson never signed him up or who knows what might have been.

Now, in the video at the top of the page, Bolt reveals that he’s gone off the idea. Apparently the retirement of Ferguson coupled with the cold weather in Manchester has led to a change in heart. Say it ain’t so, Usain.

A sad day for football.
