Nigerian Twitter reacts to Usain Bolt’s retirement from football.


The Olympic sprinting legend has officially dropped out of professional football.

On January 22, 2019, the Olympic sprinting legend declared that he is done with the sport less than a year after becoming a professional footballer.

Making the official announcement, the 32-year-old Jamaican said, “It was fun while it lasted. I don’t want to say it wasn’t dealt with properly, but I think we went about it not the way we should.”

The 100m and 200m world record holder added, “You live and you learn. It was a good experience - I really enjoyed just being in a team.”

Concerning life after retirement, Bolt said he plans to focus on various commercial endeavours.

“I’m now moving into different businesses, I have a lot of things in the pipeline, so as I say, I’m just dabbling in everything and trying to be a businessman now,” he said.
