Gerard Pique has an alright life when you stop to think about it.

He gets to live in Barcelona. His wife is Shakira. He plays football for a living. He is remunerated handsomely for it. He plays football exclusively for the very best teams and has won every trophy going. Some on multiple occasions. It’s going well for the man.

So, with all that in mind, watch this video with the appropriate levels of schadenfreude as the accomplished centre back approaches the lip of a surprisingly steep dune at speed and says “Ooooo” in the Qatari desert, before barrelling over like he’s been caught from behind by Javier Mascherano.

While Barcelona’s new manager Ernesto Valverde will probably not relish the idea of his star defender risking his life for the sake of views, ??Mr Shakira thankfully appears to come away from the crash unharmed and posted photos of his sand swerving antics to his ?social media accounts.

Assuming he doesn’t do himself anymore damage in the next few weeks, Pique will be back on grass and away from sand on July 23 when Barcelona meet Juventus in the International Champions Cup in New Jersey.
