FORMER England striker Daniel Sturridge has been training in a £200 hi-tech sports bra as he continues to search for a new club.
The ex-Liverpool uploaded footage of himself training in the stats vest and captioned the post: "Putting in work babbbyyyyy."
Sturridge, 31, has been without a club since his Trabzonspor contract was terminated by mutual consent in March 2020.
England's forgotten man claims he wants a return to professional football.
And if the video clips he posted on his Instagram on Wednesday are anything to go by, he could still cut it.
The clips show the topless goalscorer dribbling through cones dressed in black shorts, black socks and Nike boots.
And his bare chiseled torso is only covered by the black data top.
The vest donned the logo of STATSports, a GPS monitoring and analysis company.
The devices are popular in the world of elite sport and allow coaches and analysts to track performance.
It measures distance covered, speed, acceleration, deceleration and heart rate and provides coaches with valuable information on each individual.

The data that is collected can be then streamed to a phone, tablet or smartwatch for further analysis and studied by team officials.
The technology isn't just used to push players to their limits, it also ensures they aren't at risk of injury without burning them out.
The highly-sophisticated device costs around £200 and is worn by Premier League players with Arsenal and Liverpool among the clubs wearing them.
And they hit headlines earlier this month when fans were left baffled when Ukraine star Artem Dovbyk revealed one after scoring a dramatic Euro 2020 win over Sweden.
Sturridge's last game came on February 22, 2020, for Trabzonspor in a 2-2 draw with Besiktas in Turkey.
But the foolish decision to advise his brother to bet on him potentially moving to Sevilla cost him.
Sturridge was banned for four months for breaching betting rules and saw his Trabzonspor contract ripped up.
Since then, he has spent a fair amount of time in Los Angeles.
He is reportedly being sued for allegedly not paying a £26,000 reward after his stolen dog was found.
