However, the defender seems not bothered by his limitations as he went for training on Monday rocking up on a personalised bike that can reach over 45mph.

According to AS, Pique was saddled to a state-of-the-art G12 H bike that is customised for the Catalan ace.

Meanwhile, the former Manchester United star will be waiting patiently to hear the verdict from his driving offence which carries a punishment of six months in prison or a £5370 fine.
