Watch as AC Milan star Robinho rides a bike while wearing flip-flops and holding a young child with one arm.
SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO
Robinho smiled as he performed the daring feat in front of the Milan Channel cameras, but has been denounced as a poor parent by some viewers.
The short clip appears to show the Brazilian player riding his bicycle down a pleasant gravelly lane at the Milanello Sports Centre – AC Milan’s training facility.
Robinho wobbles from side to side as he chuckles, clutching a small kid with one hand and steering with the other.
Fortunately he didn’t fall during filming, but did look a bit unstable with his one-handed steering attempt leaving a little to be desired.
Mail Online accused the Milan forward of “precariously holding” the child, calling the incident “galling” and declaring his riding to be “brash at best”.

Doesn’t Milanello look lovely? Wikipedia says:
Milanello Sports Centre, commonly referred to as simply Milanello, is the training facility of Italian professional football club Associazione Calcio Milan. Built in 1963, the centre consists of 160,000 square metres (1,700,000 sq ft), including a pinewood and a little lake.
At Milanello there are six regular pitches, 1 in synthetic grass (35 m x 30), 1 covered pitch with synthetic ground (42 m x 24) and a small-sized outdoor pitch in grass named “cage” because the playing field is surrounded by a 2,30 m high wall and topped by 2,5 m high fencing.
Inside the cage, the play never stops, with the ball always in motion in order to enhance the speed of execution.
A path running through the woods ca. 1,200 m long at various altitudes is used during the season for the players’ physical training (running and biking) and for the recovery of injured players.
The main building of the centre is a two-floor building (plus the basement) hosting the offices, the players’ rooms, the chimney room, a TV-room, a pool-room; a bar, a kitchen, two dining-rooms, the press room, the meeting room, the laundry, the ironing-room and the medical centre
