Football may be in Usain Bolt's future.

The Olympic great says he might try his hand at the global game once he retires from track.

Bolt says, “I always wanted to try to play soccer. Maybe at the end of my career. It would be something that I would love to try. I watch it on TV and see these guys play. I play it all the time with my friends.”

Two days after saying he would like to defend his 100 and 200 meter titles at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, the 26-year-old Bolt says he may still branch out to other events.

Bolt says, “I could always try the 400 meters - which I don’t want to do.”
