Whether Usain Bolt plays competitive soccer in retirement is to be determined, but he’s already suiting up digitally.
Bolt is available for gameplay to those who pre-order the Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 video game to be released in September.
Though there is a dearth of track and field video games, Bolt was previously included in Temple Run 2 in 2013.
As for real-life competition, Bolt said in November that he expected to train with German club Borussia Dortmund in 2017 or 2018.
Bolt has long desired to play professional soccer, with most of his comments about his favorite Premier League club, Manchester United.
Bolt and Dortmund already have a tie-in with apparel sponsor Puma.
Bolt has three track meets left in his farewell season — Ostrava on June 28, Monaco on July 21 and the world championships in August in London, where he plans to race the 100m and 4x100m relay.
