Usain Bolt joins Borussia Dortmund for first day of training as former sprint king continues to chase a dream of becoming a footballer.

The 31-year-old Jamaican team-up with World Cup winner Mario Gotze and Marco Reus their training complex with the hope of earning a contract with the Bundesliga giant.

Bolt is one of the most recognised athletes in the world, having stormed into the record books on several occasions, most notably holding the world record at 100 meters and having claimed eight Olympic gold medals in sprint disciplines.

And Dortmund have given him the platform to do so by providing him with a 'trial'.

The German giants and Bolt are both sponsored by sportswear giant Puma and it's through this link that this unlikely partnership has happened.

Bolt clearly enjoyed himself during the 'trial' as he got to know his potential new team-mates on and off the pitch.
