Usain Bolt will join Messi and Neymar in 'PES 2018' Video Game

Usain Bolt will be available to Pro Evolution Soccer players later this year after Japanese entertainment company Konami revealed PES 2018 on Tuesday. Pre-orders will include the legend on MyClub mode.

The athletics legend, who won his final race in Jamaica soil on Saturday, will be an in-game player at launch exclusively with myClub when the game is released in September:

Bolt, who is a lifelong Manchester United fan, has long expressed a desire to play professional football and now the 30-year-old will be able to live out his dream in virtual reality.

“I love football and have played PES for as long as I can remember – it’s the best football game there is – and it’s a great honour to be a part of it and its success. When the opportunity arose to be a player in PES 2018, it was too good to be true. Having my face and movements scanned for use in the game was a fascinating process and I hope those who pre-order the game make full use of my pace and skill!”

Konami used its proprietary face-scanning systems to perfectly recreate the athlete in-game, while his running style and more importantly incredible pace will make him an asset to any side.
