Former 100, 200 and 4x100 meters champion Usain Bolt has been summoned for drug test by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority.

The 32-year-old retired from the track to chart a new course for himself playing football - a dream he has nursed for a long time.

He scored two beautiful goals for Central Coast Mariners where he is currently on trials to become a professional footballer.

The Jamaican expressed his displeasure towards the information - saying he wasn't sure why he is getting a drug test.

"So guys I've retired from track and field looking to become a footballer but look at this," Bolt said via an Instagram story as he zoomed in on the notice.

"How am I going to get a drug test today? I'm not even a professional footballer yet. Seriously...

"So I asked the lady, 'Why am I getting drug tested when I haven't signed for a club yet?' and she said they told her I'm an elite athlete so I have to get tested."

Bolt has been training with the Australian top side since August and could be given up to a year to prove he is capable of cutting it on the football pitch.

Though his goals certainly caught the world's attention, his football skills still leave a lot to be desired.

Legit.ng previously reported that Usain Bolt scored twice for Central Coast Mariners in a trial match against MacArthur South West United.

The 32-year-old 100 meters world record holder and eight-time Olympic gold medal winner joined Central Coast on trial in August in a bid to win a contract.

Bolt scored his first goal in the 57th minute putting Central Coast 3-0 up with a powerful left-footed finish.
