Usain Bolt hits out over first drug test in football

Usain Bolt has questioned why Australia’s anti-doping policy (Asada) have sent him a notice for a drugs test.

Bolt scored his first goals in football last week, but is still on trial with Central Coast Mariners.

The 32-year-old, dogged by similar tests throughout his previous career as a professional athlete, is wondering why Asada have already issued the notice.

Bolt is on trial with the Mariners but is officially registered with them, and is therefore eligible for such tests.

“So guys I’ve retired from track and field looking to become a footballer but look at this,” he said in a video posted to his Instagram followers.

“How am I going to get a drug test today? I’m not even a professional footballer yet. Seriously.

“So I asked the lady, ‘Why am I getting drug tested when I haven’t signed for a club yet?’ and she said they told her I’m an elite athlete so I have to get tested. Okay then.”
