Thibaut Courtois appears to be making the most of his downtime ahead of the start of Chelsea’s Premier League title defence next season.

The Belgian shot-stopper is enjoying a well-earned break after helping Jose Mourinho’s men win their fourth top-flight title last term ahead of Manchester City and Arsenal.

Courtois was Mourinho’s first choice between the posts as the Belgium international ousted long-term number one Petr Cech following his arrival at Stamford Bridge after his three-year loan spell at Atletico Madrid.

Cech has since been sold to local rivals Arsenal as the Czech Republic international moved on in search of regular first-team football.

And Courtois looks to be enjoying his break ahead of the 2015-16 season, as he posted the picture above on his Instagram account on Saturday afternoon and wrote: “Holidays!”

Courtois made 30 Premier League appearances for the west London side after he managed to dislodge Cech as the club’s number one goalkeeper.
