Mata club offers Usain Bolt contract

Sunrise host David Koch has defended his "slavery" joke about Usain Bolt - but admitted he "should have explained it better".

With Usain Bolt making the headlines last week after scoring his first goals as a footballer, it has now been claimed that a UEFA Champions League-chasing side in Europe has offered him a two-year contract.

Usain Bolt was shocked at receiving a notice for a drug test in Australia and expressed the same through an Instagram story on Monday.

Boston escapes ninth-inning rally, ousts Yankees for trip to ALCS
Don't know about you, but after this, my nerves will be ready for another Red Sox-Yankees series in, oh, about 14 years. Craig Kimbrel somehow, someway, got the save, almost squandering a three-run lead as part of a wild ninth inning.

The world record holder, 32, retired from athletics following the 2017 World Championships and celebrated his two goals against Macarthur South West United with his famous lightning bolt celebration.

He was then handed a huge opportunity by the Mariners and while he has recently broken his duck for the Australian club, Bolt may be heading elsewhere very soon.

The demand for the out of competition test - to collect urine and blood - appears to have been issued by Football Federation Australia. "That's the tough world of professional football".

Tottenham’s Harry Kane has brilliant record against West Ham
However, Friday's UEFA Nations League clash between Croatia and England was a step too far for one fan of the visiting team. In the summer we had a system which allowed our players to embed into worldwide football but now they are more experienced.

The Jamaican, who previously trained with Absa Premiership side Mamelodi Sundowns as well as Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund, has made no secret of his aspirations to play professional football.

Maltese champions Valletta FC said they hoped to sign the eight-time Olympic gold medallist in time for him to participate in their Maltese Super Cup match on 13 December.

"So I asked the lady, 'Why am I getting drug tested when I haven't signed for a club yet?? and she said they told her I'm an elite athlete so I have to get tested".

Talk to DUP over Brexit threat, Coveney is urged
This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed. Asked about the threat, May said: "The DUP will do what the DUP will do".

Tony Rallis, who is working as Bolt's agent during his stint in the land down under, spoke to ESPN about the interest.
