Conor McGregor races water bikes with Princess Charlene of Monaco as UFC star plans 180km voyage with ex-Olympian

CONOR MCGREGOR today swapped the octagon for the ocean as he went water bike racing with Charlene, Princess of Monaco.

The pair zoomed around the water off the coast of Monte Carlo as they prepare for an epic September challenge.

They also beamed for a picture alongside other halves Dee Devlin, and Albert II, Prince of Monaco.

McGregor, who recently turned 32, will team up with former Olympic swimmer Charlene in September as they attempt to "cycle" from Corsica to Monaco for charitable causes.

The Irishman, who appears to be loving life post-UFC, took to Instagram after enjoying a perfect day in the principality.

He wrote: "A Great day racing the water bikes with Princess Charlene of Monaco.

"A phenomenal athlete and Olympian, we are teaming up for a 180km voyage in September to raise awareness in water safety. I cannot wait

"We will be utilising my training under the McGregor F.A.S.T program to excel on these mounted water bike devices, which are incredibly good!

"It is like Freedom out there! Thank you for the great day for my family Your Highness. In aid of the Princess Charlene of Monaco foundation."

The foundation, formed in 2012, raises awareness through such initiatives as "Water Safety" and "Learn to Swim".

Charlene, 42, represented South Africa at the 1998 and 2002 Commonwealth Games, as well as the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.

She begun dating Prince Albert II in 2006, and the pair tied the knot back in 2011.

McGregor, meanwhile, has been enjoying himself in the South of France over the last few days, playing with Dee and their kids on the beach last week – as well as enjoying a smoke on a sun lounger over the weekend.
