Pique Reveals How He Wooed Pop Star Shakira

Spanish defender Gerard Pique has revealed how he managed to woo popstar Shakira back in 2010, when he was in South Africa.

Pique and the Colombian singer have been together for six years now, and have two kids, who are often seen at the Catalan club's games.

"I met Shakira in Madrid, when we were preparing for the 2010 World Cup, and after appearing in the Waka Waka video," he explained to TV3.

"It all started when we were together in South Africa and I wrote to her. She was already there because she sang in the opening ceremony and I asked her what the weather was like.

"It is the typical stupid question, and the normal answer is to tell me to bring a jacket.

"She started telling me what the weather was like in every single moment and it got to the point where I told her we would have to get to the World Cup final to see her again – she was singing at the final.

"Once we got to that stage, we might as well win it. We got there and we won."

Would you say Shakira and Pique are seen as one of sport's power couples?
