Usain Bolt may have been linked with cricket and soccer since Olympic Games success but it was football which drew the sprinter's attention during his Australian holiday yesterday.

The world's fastest man was photographed proudly wearing a West Coast Eagles shirt during a visit to Puma's head office in Victoria yesterday.

The West Coast Eagles posted the photo of the "fellow sponsored Puma athlete" on its Facebook page yesterday.

"Think he could add some pace to our midfield?" the club asked on Facebook.

Bolt is taking a well-deserved break in Australia after blitzing the 100m and 200m events in the London Olympic Games.

At the games, Bolt told media he intended to holiday in Australia and arrived in the country last month.

"I want to say to the Australian people I'm coming to vacation in September. Look out," he told media said.

Since Olympic glory, the sprinter has been tipped to take part in a charity soccer match with Manchester United and has drawn praise from the cricket community for skills he picked up as a child.
