Usain Bolt and girlfriend Kasi Bennett at Oktoberfest

He’s a star athlete, enjoying the luxury of retirement.

And Usain Bolt was certainly seen to be having fun as he joined in with the festivities at Germany’s Oktoberfest on Wednesday.

There with his girlfriend Kasi Bennett, the young couple dressed up in their best German-inspired finery and sunk pitchers of beer for the annual festival in Munich.

Usain looked thrilled to be at the festivities in a checked red and white shirt with lederhosen to compliment the Bavarian attire.

He grinned as he enjoyed large glasses of beer next to Jamaican model Kasi, 27, who wore an off the shoulder and rather busty white lacy top.

She wore her raven locks in light twists around her features and clutched her beer, a golden floral crown on her head.

The pair enjoyed the packed-out party, eating from a platter of German delicacies to compliment their hearty beers. 

Usain revealed earlier in the month that he believes his sporting career is only just getting started, as he revealed he is fielding offers from several clubs to become the next football star.  

Despite being a rookie in the sport, the eight-time Olympic champion has set the bar high, saying he plans to play for one of the biggest teams in world football – Manchester United.

Usain – who was in Sydney on Friday to launch an Optus store in the city centre – has long been an admirer of the English giants and has let it be known he has his sights set on a new career there.

‘One of my biggest dreams is to try play for Manchester United and play football, it’s something that’s on my mind,’ he told The Saturday Telegraph. 

He added: ‘My big dream would be to play for Manchester United because it’s my favourite team since I was young, but there are other teams in the Premier League I’d definitely want to try.’

The 31-year-old said he has ‘a lot’ of different offers from teams that he has considered.

But he has to overcome a hamstring injury he sensationally sustained in his final race last month, before he can consider them. 

‘It’s (football) something I always said I’d be good at and something I feel I should try post-retirement,’ he said. 

Known as ‘the fastest man alive’, Usain said he only intends to truly slow down once he has children.
