Usain Bolt’s trial with Australian football club Central Coast Mariners has come to an end.

The Jamaican eight-time Olympic sprint champion, 32, joined the A-League sidefor an “indefinite training period” in August.

He scored two goals in his first effort for the Mariners in a friendly, but did not play matches when the season began.



Efforts to secure a “commercial solution” to keep Bolt at the club had failed, the Mariners said on Friday.

Last month, the Mariners said they had made a contract proposal broken down into “football” and “commercial” terms. However, it hinged on a contribution from a “third party”.

Despite meetings with “several promising potential partners” no deal could be reached, the club said.Mariners owner Mike Charlesworth thanked Bolt for his eight-week trial, describing it as a success.

The 100m and 200m world record holder has described it as his “dream” to play professional football.

“I would like to thank the Central Coast Mariners owners, management, staff, players and fans for making me feel so welcome during my time there,” he said on Friday.

Bolt, who retired from athletics in 2017, has previously trained with Borussia Dortmund, South African club Mamelodi Sundowns and Norway’s Stromsgodset.

Polish author Olga Tokarczuk and Austria’s Peter Handke have been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, with Kenya’s Ngugi wa Thiong’o overlooked.

Two winners were named – one for 2019 and one for 2018 – because the prize was not awarded last year.

The Swedish Academy, which oversees the prestigious award, suspended it in 2018 after a sexual assault scandal.

Tokarczuk, who also won the Man Booker International Prize last year, was awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize, with this year’s Nobel going to Handke.

Ngugi wa Thiong’o had been considered a strong candidate for the prize, but he failed

In just a few hours, we’ll be hearing Kevin Gates’ latest musical offering in its entirety. For months, we’ve been hearing about his I’m Him project and we’re about to find out exactly why Gates is that dude.

After his release from prison early last year, the Baton Rouge veteran released his Chained To The City EP before coming through with Luca Brasi 3. It’s officially album time and his fans couldn’t be any more excited. Kicking off the campaign, the Bread Winner is starting us off with the introductory song on I’m Him, dropping a video for “RBS Intro.”

The video for “RBS Intro” was filmed during Gates’ trip to Amsterdam and the track itself is hard-hitting like most of his other hits. This will be the first cut from the new album.

Kevin Gates has described this journey as a reintroduction to himself, showing off all sides of his mind and truly remaining an open book. He said: “All of those negative connotations the world puts out…I’m him. All of those positive connotations the world puts out…I’m him as well. This is the new Kevin versus the old Kevin. It’s a celebration. It’s a rebirth. It’s redemption. I’m overcoming who I used to be in order to be greater.”

Stay tuned for the new album tonight!

Quotable Lyrics:

Hold it down when I’m on lock
Calling shots from the box
Diamond teeth full of rocks
I’m a real big speaker
