We know what Fernando Alonso got up to in Dubai!

We've got a few months to go until F1 fever well and truly strikes the UAE but the celeb visits to our shores have started already! Formula 1 ace Fernando Alonso was in Dubai last night (14 August) and the Spaniard was looking for a taste of home. He stopped by Spanish tapas bar Seville’s in Wafi for a bite. 

Fernando (who is this year's ambassador for Marca España, representing Spain around the world) said that he was looking forward to visiting Abu Dhabi in November for the Grand Prix. But before the racing it was time for eating, at Seville's Alonso sampled calamares fritos and tapas including mejillones al vino, croquetas and gambas. And he posed with some very happy fans while he was there, check out the pics right here!
