Usain Bolt has reportedly been invited by Real Madrid to attend its opening Spanish league match next Sunday.

AS sports daily reported that Bolt, who recently set world records in the 100 and 200 metres at the World Championships in Berlin, has been asked to sit in the president’s box at Santiago Bernabeu stadium to watch the game against Deportivo La Coruna.

It is not known if Bolt has accepted the offer. Calls to Real Madrid by The Associated Press were not answered.

Last year, Madrid invited Bolt to watch a match after he set three world marks at the Beijing Olympics but the Jamaican didn’t attend. Bolt also helped the Jamaican team win the 4x100 relay for his third gold of the worlds.
