Portuguese club Beira-Mar have offered to pay Usain Bolt in burgers and beer to pursue a new career as a footballer, but injury looks to have halted a "dream" move.
Bolt tweeted - and then deleted - on Thursday a message saying the hamstring tear that ended his IAAF World Championships will require three months' rehabilitation, although Beira-Mar had earlier invited the Jamaican to join the Aveiro club on their Facebook page.
