The fastest man in the world is suspending his football dreams for a week.

Usain Bolt joined Central Coast Mariners, a team from the A-League based in Gosford, north of Sydney, for an "indefinite" training period.

The 31-year-old sprint star had to put his budding football career on hold while heading to an unnamed location on Sunday.

The club from New South Wales issued a statement on Saturday, saying it would be out for a week.

"After completing his first three weeks of training with the Central Coast Mariners, the club wishes to inform that Usain Bolt will be abroad from Sunday September 9 to Sunday September 16 for a previously planned commitment," the statement said.

"This commitment was agreed between Usain Bolt and the Central Coast Mariners before their training period with the club began."

Bolt made his club debut when he entered the final stages of a test match against a select Central Coast team earlier this month.

He played just over 20 minutes in the 6-1 victory, in front of a crowd of almost 10,000 people.

"I think the great player was fine," Mariners coach Mike Mulvey said of Bolt after that game.

"I was hidden from anything a little nervous, but I'm quite happy with it."

The eight-time Olympic gold medalist is trying to become a professional soccer player and has been tested with the Australian A-League club.

"I just want to thank everyone at Central Coast Mariners for giving me this opportunity to play professional football in the A League," Bolt said in an online video share.

"I'm waiting for opportunities to show that with hard work everything is possible, so I'm looking forward to it and I'll come and give my best.

Careful, I'm on my way. Remember that I do not take limits & # 39;

The Jamaican athlete said he was waiting for the challenge and working hard to get to the level required to "have an impact."

"When I spoke on the phone with coach Mike Mulvey, he described the club's ambitions and plans for next season," Bolt told Central Coast Mariners.

The 31-year-old, who has world records of 100 m and 200 m, initially had the intention to participate in a six-week test, but was negotiated indefinitely.

The king of the sprints retired from athletics last year, but if he proves he has successfully passed the training, it could end up being a multi-million dollar deal, according to the Herald Sun.
