After some light stretching under the guise of BVB coach Peter Stöger, the sprint king eased into a training game that not only produced a wonderfully-taken headed goal, but also a magical nutmeg that delighted the enthralled spectators.

Following the workout, Bolt momentarily sat on the turf, sweat dripping from his brow and his lungs working hard following his huge efforts. After that, it was time for some of Dortmund's players to pose for photos with the great man, who later approached fans to sign autographs.

Watch: Bolt: "I want to keep training and hopefully sign!"

"I think overall I will give myself probably a seven out of ten," Bolt told reporters after the training session. I think I was okay. I did well, it just takes practice now. To put in more work and get fit.

"I wanted to play my best. I wanted to move and give the guys options and I tried my best. I'm really trying to make it professionally, so I have to play at a high level."

If Dortmund deem Bolt's trial a success, he could come face to face on a football field with the man currently keen on taking his mantle as Jamaica's most famous sportsman, Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey. Bolt himself certainly hopes he is given the chance to train again.

"Hopefully the team welcome me in the near future," Bolt explained. I'd like to continue training with them, getting more experience, getting better and hopefully signing. You never know."
