Usain Bolt releases video playing football, tells Manchester United to sign him up

Usain Bolt is a rabid Manchester United fan, and new footage from a BBC film highlights the sprinter’s love affair for everything Old Trafford.

‘The Fastest Man Alive’ was broadcasted in the middle of July in Britain, and one of the standout scenes of the documentary saw the Jamaican filmed as he played a kick-about with his mates in the park.

Confirming that he was playing football is contravention of the rules set by his trainers (“it’s forbidden, but in life you’ve gotta enjoy life!”), Bolt made a direct plea to the main man at Old Trafford.

Bolt: “Yo! Alex Ferguson, just watch… Makes sure Alex Ferguson gets this video!”

Enjoy the footage below.
