All Whites striker Jeremy Brockie has had a day to remember in South Africa after spending the day training with Olympic champion Usain Bolt.

The retired Jamaican superstar joined South African football side Mamelodi Sundowns at training on Monday (Tuesday morning NZ time) to show off some of his skills on the football pitch.

Thirty-year-old Brockie posted a photo to Twitter with the two standing next to each other.

The eight-time Olympic champion has often spoken about his desire to play professional football after he retired from the track.

Bolt has been invited to spend a week training with German club Borussia Dortmund in March and he plans to take it up.

"I have always played football, but cricket was my first love," Bolt said. "I used to be a goalkeeper actually when I started out. I used to be in goal when I was in primary school.

"But throughout the years, it's something that I have enjoyed. I used to play football, but my coach banned me from it. He always told me 'No football'.

"I would steal some time to play with my friends. I have been doing it for a while now."

Brockie recently signed with Mamelodi after four seasons with fellow South African side SuperSport United where he scored 28 goals in 81 games.
