Alexis Sanchez looked in good spirits as he snapped a selfie during a visit to Tocopilla in Chile on Sunday night.
The Arsenal star is currently enjoying some well-earned downtime after a gruelling season ended in him lifting the Copa America with Chile earlier this month.
Sanchez organised an awards ceremony called “Playing for a Dream” this weekend, with the Arsenal forward handing out footballs and sportswear to hundreds of children.
And the 26-year-old looked to be enjoying himself as he snapped a selfie in front of the gathered crowds.
Sanchez uploaded the photo above onto his Instagram account and wrote:
The Chile international is set to miss the Gunners’ Premier League opener against West Ham United on 9 August after being given an extended summer break.
Sanchez is currently recovering from a gruelling campaign in which he helped Arsenal win the FA Cup title and is not due to report back to London until 3 August.
