Jamaican "living legend" Usain Bolt has revealed he is keen to follow up his incredible Olympic success with a stint on the cricket pitch.
In an exclusive interview with Channel Nine's Karl Stefanovic, Bolt said that after winning six Olympic gold medals he would love the opportunity to play in the Twenty20 Big Bash.
"(Shane Warne) contacted me and asked me about if I am serious and if I really want to do it then he can put in a few words that should get it done," Bolt told Channel Nine.
"So we will see if I get the time off. I will try."
Bolt played cricket as a youngster before being advised that his speed would be better utilised on the running track.
"If I get the chance I will definitely try because I know it’s going to be a lot of fun. I don’t know how good I am. I will probably have to get a lot of practice in."
The candid interview showed an until now unseen side to the consummate showman.
He revealed he harboured doubts about his own ability after suffering set-backs in the lead-up to the Olympics including injuries and the false-start that saw him disqualified from the 100m event at last year's World Championships.
"It's been hard," he said. "The past four years have been up and down.
"But it all paid off so I'm happy."
Bolt added that he was looking forward to heading to Australia for a vacation and was on the lookout for love.
"I haven't got a girlfriend," he said. "I'm looking for one. It's the hardest thing. I'm taking my time. I'm still young.
"I might find one in Australia."
However, he said Australia's dads did not need to lock up their daughters.
"I'm not a hunter," he said.
