Visa Bolt Football

 

Now that London 2012 is almost upon us, sprint super star Usain Bolt appears to be absolutely everywhere.

 

And judging from his footballing skills, it might not be too long before we see him in the Premier League.

 

At least that’s the impression given from this webfilm outtake that has gone viral. With 100,000-plus YouTube views to date.

 

The fastest man on the planet looks like a more than decent football player and he showed off his ball skills during a break on set filming the new pan-European ‘Flows Faster’ TV commercial for Visa Europe.

 

It seems Bolt killed time during the shoot with an impromptu kick around.

 

The short clip of its tricks and flicks – from keepy-uppies and blasting in penalties to scoring with his eyes closed.

 

An avid fan of Premiership leaders Manchester United fan, Bolt has been public with his love of the game. so just maybe one day we’ll see him on the pitch at Old Trafford…

 

Comment

 

This viral even benefitted from some personal (paid?) publicity from the man himself. Bolt commented on his Twitter Feed that he really enjoyed the commercial shoot.

 

“’Love the ad…was great fun putting it together”
