Nation buzzing as the world’s fastest man bolts into town

The New South Wales Central Coast is buzzing as fans await the arrival of the world’s fastest man.

Sprinter Usain Bolt touches down in the country tomorrow, looking to kick off a professional soccer career.

The eight-time Olympic gold medal winner will trial with the Central Coast Mariners and it’s safe to say the locals are excited.

They’ve even named a burger in his honour.

Russell Mills from Tourism Central Coast tells Chris Smith the timing “couldn’t be better”.

“He’s got a huge profile.

“The fact that he’s chosen the Central Coast to base himself to develop his professional football career is just amazing.

“So we’re looking to make the most of it.”
