Rugby legend Shane Williams blasted a “k***head” thief for raiding his home while his wife and children were inside.
Former British Lions and Wales ace Williams, 44, lost a £10,000 custom-built road bike during the break-in.
Since retiring from rugby father-of-two Williams has taken up endurance challenges including gruelling charity bike rides and Ironman races.
Wales’ record try scorer even launched his own range of cycling clothing earlier this year after partnering with bike company Agilis.

He said he would accept the items back and would take no further action if they were returned
Writing on Wednesday night, he said: “To the absolute k***head who decided to steal my bike and wheels from my home today you are on CCTV and we have your details.
“I want these items returned immediately or further action will be taken.”
He later added: “Could all my friends please keep an eye out for someone trying to sell my Agilis road bike. It has been stolen from my home today along with some Zipps wheels!
“There is only one of these bikes in circulation so let’s make it difficult for this t**t to offload it!

“Possessions don’t really matter too much to me it’s just that someone has decided to go into my property whilst I’m away and my family are home has really made my blood boil!”
Williams is a well-known family man and had previously spoken about how important it is to him.
He talked in 2016 about how he liked nothing more than being outdoors with his children Georgie and Carter.
Williams added: ‘Being back with the family is the most important thing ever.
‘Every excuse we go out.’
