Rafa Nadal serves up convincing cameo with raunchy role in new Shakira video
19 FEBRUARY 2010
Smouldering on screen in her latest music video, Colombian singer Shakira cosies up to a dark and handsome stranger as she writhes around on a rock face.
A closer look, however, reveals that her companion is no unknown extra, but rather Spanish tennis ace Rafa Nadal.
The former world number one takes on a starring role away from the courts in the video for Shakira's new track, Gypsy
, which is released in April.
While the 23-year-old sportsman remains modestly dressed for his cameo in a T-shirt and jeans, his South American co-star dared to bare a little more in a revealing sheer outfit.
Despite the fact that their on-screen chemistry is sizzling, reports of a romance between the pair fall wide of the mark.
Both Shakira and Rafa – who lensed the video together in Barcelona in January – are in long-term relationships.
The striking singer is engaged to marry
Antonio de la Rua, the son of Argentina's former president, while the Majorcan is in a relationship with his childhood sweetheart
, Maria Francisca Perello.
