Bolt gets to live out his United dream – as he stars in new Pro Evo 2018 game

Date Posted,June 13, 2017

Usain Bolt will get to live out his dream as a Manchester United player when he becomes a playable character in the football video game Pro Evolution Soccer 2018.

The eight-time Olympic gold medalist is likely to be the fastest player in the game.

Any gamer who pre-orders PES, which is released on September 14, will be given access to use the Jamaican as a player.

Bolt said: “I love football and have played PES for as long as I can remember – it’s the best football game there is – and it’s a great honour to be a part of it and its success.

Usain Bolt challenges Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi to race before he quits athletics this summer

“When the opportunity arose to be a player in PES 2018, it was too good to be true.

“Having my face and movements scanned for use in the game was a fascinating process and I hope those who pre-order the game make full use of my pace and skill!”

Bolt, who is retiring from athletics after the World Championships in London this summer, will also have a chance to take on Lionel Messi – albeit virtually.

Last week, Bolt challenged the Barcelona ace to a race.

He said: “I always like to try new things and Messi is one of the greatest footballers to ever grace the face of this earth.

“It would be an honour [to race him] because I have never met Messi.”
