Lewis Hamilton branded a ‘gentleman’ after picking up Shakira

Lewis Hamilton and pop star Shakira have reportedly met up on numerous occasions since the Miami Grand Prix.

French outlet Gentsu has recently labelled Lewis Hamilton a “gentleman” as reports claim the seven-time World Champion picked up singer Shakira from her home in Miami.

Such speculation adds fuel to the fire regarding the new romance between Hamilton and the pop star.

The Colombian-born pop sensation endured a well-televised split from Barcelona legend Gerard Pique in June last year.

After the Miami Grand Prix, a race in which Hamilton finished sixth, rumours ripened as the pair were pictured meeting in a restaurant post-race, appearing rather cheerful.

Since then, the duo were captured enjoying a boat day around Biscayne Bay near the £16million Florida mansion, owned by Shakira.

Nor Shakira nor Hamilton have declined or confirmed the authenticity of such rumours and the word on the pipeline in England suggests the pair are simply friends catching up.
