Retired sprint idol Usain Bolt was evidently delighted with his invitation to Old Trafford as he rubbed shoulders with Manchester United legends on Saturday. 

The Jamaican track star bowed out of athletics this month following the World Championships at London Stadium, where he relinquished his 100m title to Justin Gailin.

Bolt then took up his place in the stands, where he was an animated presence even before a ball was kicked! 

Having made no secret of his desire to go into professional football following retirement, could Bolt one day find his way onto the Old Trafford pitch? He would certainly be the nightmare of any full-back haring down the wing!
