Shakira: 'I'm dating Gerard Pique'

Shakira has revealed she is dating Spanish footballer Gerard Pique.

The singer confirmed the news by posting a romantic pic of the pair posing together on her Twitter page accompanied with the message: 'I present to you my sunshine.'

Shakira and Pique became the focus of intense media speculation when they were spotted holding hands in Barcelona together earlier this month.

But she always dismissed any reports of a romance.

The singer first met Pique last spring during filming for the video of her World Cup song 'Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)'.
