1DX is Auto Multi-Pattern white balance available?

I'm trying to get my 1DX to utilize multi-pattern white balance and I can't seem to be able to do it.

Is this possible? It would be ideal for sports and in the studio.

When shooting scenes that include multiple light sources, such as sunlight and shade or flash, light sources I want them to be recognized automatically and the image separated into different areas. I want the White balance to be adjusted separately in each area according to the different light sources to achieve optimal color reproduction.

I know that Pentax offers it in their 645Z, so I'm assuming Canon offers it too, I just can't figure out how to do it.

Thank you
