Christian Eriksen was proudly posing with his sister for a snap which the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder posted on his Instagram page on Friday afternoon.

The 23-year-old Spurs playmaker is enjoying catching up with his sibling following the conclusion of the Premier League season last month.

Eriksen has scored three goals and has made 10 assists in 38 Premier League games, featuring in each of the north London side’s top-flight matches last term.

But the Tottenham star was making sure his sister got plenty of recognition after she presumably achieved a naval feat judging by her cap in the photo.

Eriksen posted the following caption: “Congratulations sea hat! #proudbrother @louisederiksen”

The Denmark international has been a huge hit at the League Cup runners-up after he moved to Spurs from Ajax in an £11m deal in 2013.
