Sprint king Usain Bolt's attempt to become a professional footballer with Australia's Central Coast Mariners collapsed Friday as his trial period was terminated after contract talks failed. The eight-time Olympic champion had been trying out with the A-League side for an indefinite period since arriving in August, hoping to fulfill a childhood dream to become a football player.The 100-meter world record holder, who retired from athletics last year and has previously tried out with clubs in Germany, South Africa and Norway, thanked the Mariners for the opportunity.Bolt's abilities were also questioned by pundits and some players, including former Ireland striker Andy Keogh who last month said he had a "touch like a trampoline".Despite the failure to agree terms, Bolt's presence at the Mariners has garnered huge publicity for a club that finished bottom of the A-League last season.
