Alexis Sanchez was all smiles as he posed for a selfie with his brother and some of his friends as he continues to enjoy his extended summer holiday.

The 26-year-old forward is currently enjoying some well-earned downtime in his native homeland after helping to fire his country to Copa America glory earlier this month.

And the Arsenal star looked in good spirits as he uploaded the picture above onto his Instagram account on Wednesday and wrote: “With friends and brother.”

The Chile international, who joined Arsenal from Barcelona last summer, is set to miss the Gunners’ Premier League opener against West Ham United on 9 August after being given an extended summer break.
