Usain Bolt Reveals Plan to Be Businessman After Announcing Retirement From Soccer

Two months after failing to reach a contract agreement with Australian soccer club, the multiple Olympic gold medallist states that his 'sports life is over.'

AceShowbiz - Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt is retiring from sports.

The multiple Olympic gold medallist, who retired from racing in 2017, joined Australian soccer club Central Coast Mariners last year (18), but after failing to reach a contract agreement in November (18), Bolt has decided to dedicate his life to business.

"I'm just doing many different things... the sports life is over, so I'm now moving into different businesses," he tells Reuters. "I have a lot of things in the pipeline, so as I say, I'm just dabbling in everything and trying to be a businessman now."

Bolt's announcement comes months after he was stripped of his perfect Olympics record following a teammate's drug use.

In May (18), a Court of Arbitration for Sport panel dismissed Nesta Carter's appeal against disqualification from the 2008 Beijing Olympics for a positive doping test, which was discovered in 2016. The ruling meant that the Jamaican relay squad's gold medal no longer counted, as Carter was a member of the team which set a new 4×100-meter world record. Bolt was part of the team.
