Usain Bolt is set to be added to FIFA 19 regardless of whether he signs a professional contract with Australian side Central Coast Mariners.
Bolt’s unlikely foray into the world of football has garnered plenty of attention, as he attempts to earn himself a full-time deal with the A-League side.
The world’s fastest man will grace FIFA 19 sooner or later with EA Sports confirming Usain Bolt will be added to the popular game.
‘If Usain is picked up by the Central Coast Mariners then he will automatically be included in the winter update or the next major update,’ a source from EA told Fox Sports Asia.
‘But if he isn’t listed then he might be included as a free agent.’
So, what about his speed? Given he is officially the fastest man on the planet, all eyes would be on his pace stats should he be added in the next EA update.
After retiring from athletics in 2017, Bolt is attempting to become a professional footballer and is on trial with Australian club Central Coast Mariners.
Bolt retired from athletics in 2017, has trained with Borussia Dortmund and made clear his desire to earn a professional deal.
Following his brace last week Central Coast Mariners CEO Shaun Mielekamp told ESPN that ‘it’s too early to tell’ if they will take on the 32-year-old.
