Usain Bolt trained with a French football club and it looks like his skills may need brushing up

It’s no secret that Usain Bolt is a big football fan, so it isn’t surprising he takes every chance he can get to train with people who play the sport for a living.

However, it looks like his heading skills may need brushing up, if the videos JS Saint-Jean Beaulieu put up on Twitter are anything to go by.

Bolt heads the ball wide of the goalmouth, then swings from the bar in frustration.

Later on, he tries to let his feet do the talking but misses again.

The club, in France’s sixth tier of football, hosted Bolt as he visited France for the IAAF World Atheltics gala and dropped in for a kickabout.
