The multiple Olympic and world champion and world 100m record holder is due to train with Borussia Dortmund, but the Black-and-Yellows striker is lying in wait to test the Jamaican superstar’s mettle.

"I'm waiting for you man," Aubameyang told CNN in a message shown to a smiling Bolt. "I hope to see you one day, and let's do this challenge!"

The Gabonese international is no slouch and clocked a time of 3.7 seconds over 30m in 2013 - faster than Bolt, who set his 100m world record of 9.58 seconds in Hertha Berlin’s Olympiastadion in 2009.

However Bolt looked unfazed by Aubameyang’s challenge, and responded by saying, "People are always trying to call me out. He knows I'm going to win."

Dortmund face Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday 3 December at 15:30CET/14:30GMT - visit the Match Centre here.
