Justin Bieber showed he is more than just slick dance moves when the international singing sensation joined a training session with Spanish football club Barcelona on Thursday.

A night after playing a sold-out show in the Catalan capital, the 17-year-old Canadian pop phenomenon suited up to train with the Spanish champions at their training ground.

Barcelona says on its website that Bieber - clad head-to-toe in the club's green training kit - displayed good technique and a deft left foot as he practiced with Bojan Krkic, Thiago, Benja and B-team goalkeeper Ruben Mino.

Bieber, unfortunately, missed Barcelona's 5-1 Champions League win over Shakhtar Donetsk at the Camp Nou stadium on Wednesday.
