Dublin: 9 °C Tuesday 24 April, 2018

Coldplay's Chris Martin popped in for a gym session with John Kavanagh in Dublin

No one ever said it would be this hard.

COLDPLAY’S SOLD-OUT Croker gig on Saturday night dominated the weekend’s festivities in Dublin – but the next stop on their mammoth A Head Full of Dreams Tour isn’t until tonight in Cardiff.

So the lads got a bit of a break for a few days.

And Chris Martin spent one of them working out in Straight Blast Gym on the Naas Road in Walkinstown yesterday

Good training today with my boy Chris Martin @coldplay kicks like a donkey but needs bit of work on his uppercuts.

Even has the tshirt on and all.

Famously run by Conor McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh, word must have reached Chris about The Notorious’s training regime and he wanted to be a part of it.

In a pun-filled Facebook post last night, Kavanagh wrote about the visit:

Had Chris In My Place today. It went Something Just Like This. He said the mats were too Yellow so trained in the ring. I thought I was in Trouble when he hit me at the Speed of Sound. I almost saw a Sky Full of Stars. I said relax mate I am The Scientist, Don’t Panic I will Fix You. Sadly we checked the Clocks and he had to leave. It was an Adventure of a Lifetime. Just another day in Paradise.

And Chris posed for a few photos in the ring too

The newest addition to @coach_kavanagh's fight team ☺️🦍 Seriously sound guy @coldplay #ChrisMartin #PrivateLesson

It looks like it’s the Coldplay man’s final act in the city – where he’s been cruising his way around the capital being sound since he arrived.

He stopped for photos with this fan on O’Connell Street on Friday night – and promised to dedicate Fix You in Croke Park to a recently-passed friend of his

And he ran into this fan the same night who couldn’t get tickets to the show… so he just gave her some

Let’s hope Coach Kavanagh didn’t work him too hard.
