Gerard Pique came to the rescue of man who was involved in a motorbike crash who turned out to be a fan of Barcelona’s arch rivals, Espanyol.
Pique was one of the first on the scene when the man, identified as Frans Aviles, was involved in a traffic accident.
The Barcelona defender got out of his car and rushed to help the man, according to the Mirror, not thinking twice about the man’s sporting allegiances - which the Barca star didn’t know about.
It is a stark contrast to the Pique of a few months ago when he was famously quoted as saying “Don’t you know who I am?” to the Spanish police after getting fined for improper parking.
He was the good Samaritan this time as he waited with the man until he was taken to hospital.

Aviles, who suffered a broken leg in the accident, revealed he is a huge Espanyol fan, to the extent that he even got married at the Estadi Cornella-El Prat, the team’s home ground.
He has been to many ‘Derbi Barcelonis’, that is the name given to the Espanyol versus Barcelona fixture, and said that hurled abuse at Pique from the terraces on many occasions.
Pique’s good deed won’t make him switch sides but he has said that he will think twice before he shouts anything about from now on.
Is Pique now back to his best after last season's dip in form? Have your say in the comments below!
