Gerard Piqué has hit out at the rumours surrounding the alleged robbery at Spain's team hotel in Recife.

Some players of La Roja had large amounts of money stolen from their rooms in the Golden Tulip Recife Palace.

Members of the Spain squad were reportedly celebrating following their 2-1 victory over Uruguay in the Confederations Cup on Thursday.

Globoesporte claim that, according to hotel employees, five women joined five players and one member of Spain's backroom staff in a game of strip poker.

Piqué has shown his outrage, claiming that those statements are false.

Speaking to Cadena Cope, Pique said: "These are all lies. They are trying to complicate other people's lives.

"The football federation will take up this matter."

He added: "This is all a very unpleasant and unwelcome experience. This situation will be resolved, though. Lies are always exposed at some point."

Rumours suggest that, as well as Pique, Andrés Iniesta, Santi Cazorla, Iker Casillas and Sergio Ramos were the other high-profile names involved, although Iniesta has since denied he had anything to do with the incident on Spanish radio Cadena Ser.
