Could Usain Bolt be ready for a career switch? It certainly appears the world's fastest man is implying as much with his latest instagram post.

Bolt, who has toyed with the idea of playing football before, has been in the news recently as apparently being open to a Jamaica call-up. While tabloid gossip is to be taken with a grain of salt, his instagram post would suggest this may not be so far-fetched.


Bolt writes:

Jamaica how we look? Hmmm..A we say to the world and anything possible.. #SeriousFace #ReggaeBoyz #ForeverFaster #FutureOption #MadTalent #AnythingPossible

What do you think, can sprinter speed translate into success on the pitch? Could we see Usain Bolt lining up against the likes of Mexico and the United States in 2018 World Cup Qualifiers? Let us know your opinions in the comments.
