Chris Martin has been enjoying his downtime in Dublin following his sold out Croke Park gig on Saturday night.

The Coldplay frontman popped out to Straight Blast Gym on the Naas Road for a private training session with Conor McGregor's coach John Kavanagh on Monday before hitting McDowell's pub in Inchicore for a pint.

Kavanagh posted a pic of himself posing with Martin to Instagram with the caption, "Good training today with my boy Chris Martin @coldplay kicks like a donkey but needs bit of work on his uppercuts."

He also shared a post on Facebook in which he employed every Coldplay-related pun imaginable...

Had Chris In My Place today. It went Something Just Like This. He said the mats were too Yellow so trained in the ring....

In a message any tabloid sub editor would be proud of he wrote, "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."
