Wheels of fortune

For the athlete in your life who has everything, how about this 24k gold bicycle?

Luxury goods company Goldgenie has released a limited edition men's racing bike plated with 24 karat gold.

They say: "Striking to look at, the bike is even more beautiful when in fluid motion, as the spinning spokes catch the sunlight and ripples along the golden frame."

Designed by Goldgenie's inhouse team, each bike is also adorned with diamonds before delivery. It's available to buy for a princely sum of £250,000.
