Bolt heading for Wembley this weekend

6:19 am on 25 May 2011

The world's fastest man Usain Bolt talked as much about football as track at a news conference before his first big event of the season, the Golden Gala Diamond league meeting in Rome.

The Olympic and world sprint champion says he's feeling nervous for the first time in his career as he prepares to start the new season after injuries shortened his last campaign.

Bolt competes tomorrow night in Rome, and he'll be flying to London this weekend to be at Wembley to watch his favourite football team Manchester United take on Barcelona in the Champions league final.

Bolt says he intends playing football when he retires from athletics.
