First the world's fastest man teased the world by claiming that he signed for a football team.
Then Mamelodi Sundowns took advantage of the fact that Bolt was training with them not long ago. Were the Brazilians hinting that Bolt signed for the SA club?
That couldn't be true, surely? And if he did, can you imagine him sprinting past all the South African players like Forrest Gump?
But, there's no touchdown's in soccer. Can Bolt even play the game? We will have to find out in a charity game. Yes, a charity game.
It appears as though it wasn't just Sundowns taking us for a ride... it was Bolt himself. He will be participating in a celebrities match. That's not the news we were expecting.
Here's how famous football players and the fans reacted on Twitter.

He’s gonna come in handy in taking corner kicks since he’s gonna sprint to the 18 area to put it at the back of the net as well.— Siyabonga Zulu (@Siyabonga_Zulu) February 26, 2018
