Premiership defenders beware - Cristiano Ronaldo has signed up the fastest man on earth to help him strike even more terror into Manchester United's Barclays Premier League opponents.
Olympic 100 metres champion Usain Bolt contacted the world player of the year to ask for a signed shirt, but Ronaldo wants a favour in return.
He has asked for a training session with Bolt, who won the Olympic title in Beijing with a stunning world record of 9.69sec, so the Jamaican is now planning a trip to Manchester to fulfil his part of the bargain.
Bolt's agent Ricky Simms said: 'We'll sort something out when Usain comes to Europe to compete this summer. It's definitely going to happen.'
