Dortmund and Bolt share a sponsor in Puma, which makes the tryout an easy match.

Bolt, 31, a longtime Man United fan, retired from the track after damaging his hamstring at the World Championships in London in August. However, he told The Express that the injury is “now fine and I’m back to fully fit.”

Still, Bolt admitted that the swagger he showed throughout his four Olympic Games and record-breaking runs has yet to transfer on the soccer field.

"It makes me nervous,” Bolt said of the upcoming trial. “I don't get nervous but this is different, this is football now. It'll take time to adjust but once I play a few times I'll get used to it. It was the same when I started track and field. I was nervous for a while until I started getting used to the crowd, people and everyone around and it falls into place.”

Bolt has for years shared his goal of crossing over into soccer, but no matter how far he takes it, he’ll always be remembered first and foremost as the greatest sprinter of all time.
