Bolt keen on Rio, 400 and long jump eyed

The six time gold medallist Usain Bolt says he's a definite starter for another Olympic Games in four years' time, opening up the possibility of more sprint records or an attempt at other events.

Speculation has been rife since the London Games that the Olympic 100 and 200 metres champion could quit athletics and not compete at Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

His hunger for success, however, appears to be showing no signs of abating.

Bolt, also a member of Jamaica's world record-breaking 4x100 relay team in London, says the possibility of switching from the sprints to the 400 or long jump has long been debated.

The newly-turned 26-year-old also revealed that his dream of one day becoming a football player still burned bright.
