Olympic legend Usain Bolt was left fuming this weekend after being forced to take a drug test by Football Federation Australia.
Bolt, 32, is awaiting confirmation over a professional contract within his six-week trial with A-League side Central Coast Mariners.
The 100m world-record holder netted a brace - his first strikes as a footballer, during a pre-season friendly on Friday, but was left bemused after the historic encounter.
The eight-time Olympic Gold medalist took to Instagram on Monday to show a testing notice he allegedly received from FFA.
"So guys, I've retired from track and field looking to become a footballer but look at this," said Bolt, as quoted by AS.
"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. Okay then."
