Eight time Olympic gold medallist, Usain Bolt, has become brand ambassador for Japanese game manufacturer Konami and will feature in Pro Evolution Soccer 2018. The announcement comes just a week after Konami rivals, EA Sports, introduced Cristiano Ronaldo as the face of FIFA 18.
Konami will hope that the exclusive Bolt character in the game will boost sales of the PES series. Last year PES 2017 sold just 1.13m copies globally, compared to the 16m copies of FIFA 17 sold.
Bolt has made no secrets about his love for football and has previously spoke about how he thinks he could play for Man United.
