Gerard Pique, in an interesting and extensive interview with El Pais Semanal, spoke about how he manages to fit so much into his life. 

The Barcelona defender has a number of business ventures with his company Kosmos, the latest being the revamp of the tennis competition the Davis Cup. 

Pique confessed in the interview that his obsession with the organisation of the tournament, which takes place in Madrid next week, has seen him sleep less than ever. 

"I hardly get four or five hours of sleep a night," he said. "I don't have time for everything." 

Pique is trying to combine his other interests with Barcelona training, given he has now retired from international football with Spain. 

He says it hasn't caused any problems with Barcelona, who understand his choices: "They have understood and there are no problems. I use my free time to dedicate myself to what I like doing." 

It's a confession that will surprise many elite-level performers and fitness coaches, who consider a good amount of sleep to be key when it comes to preparation.
