Olympic champion Usain Bolt has agreed to go training with Spanish football giants Real Madrid, the Jamaican sprint king revealed.

Bolt, who picked up three golds medals and world records in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at the Bejing Games, said on Thursday he was particularly looking forward to meeting Real's former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy.

"Raul and Van Nistelrooy, I think they're some of the best goalscorers ever," Bolt said.

"I've watched van Nistelrooy from when he was with Manchester United, so I know he's a great, great guy so I look forward to meeting these guys."
