London: Colombian singer Shakira has fuelled rumours that she is dating Spanish footballer Gerard Pique after the two were spotted happily walking hand-in-hand.
The photographs show Pique gently leading Shakira, as they left their car and entered an eatery in Barcelona.
The 24-year-old FC Barcelona defender had been squiring the 34-year-old singer around the Catalonian capital before they decided to stop for a bite.
Both of them beamed at the cameras as they pulled up in a car outside the restaurant, and didn`t hide their hand-holding as they made their way inside.
For long, the duo has been insisting they are just good friends. Shakira has previously dated lawyer Antonio de la Rua, 37, the eldest son of the former Argentinian premier. However, they broke up amid rumours that he was cheating on her.
