Forget track and field – Olympian Usain Bolt is all about dancing now!

The nine-time Olympic gold medalist says he would love to be a contestant on hit TV show Dancing with the Stars in the future.

“I would definitely do it,” Bolt, 30, tells PEOPLE. “I think I can dance.”

And Bolt isn’t wrong – the sprinter has definitely got some moves!

After a press conference at the Rio Games in August, the track and field legend joined a group of Brazilian samba dancers for a performance – rolling his hips and throwing his hands in the air.

“I love dancing and music,” he says.

And now that Bolt has officially announced his plans to retire from athletics after next year, it seems he might actually have time to appear on the show,

“I’ve talked to a few people who said if you want to get on the show then we can get you on,” he says.

No doubt about it, the fastest man in the world has serious potential to win if DWTS brings him on next season.
