Chris Smalling appeared rather delighted to make it to Machu Picchu after the Manchester United defender snapped an ecstatic selfie with his girlfriend.

The England international has been exploring South America with his photographer girlfriend, Samantha Cooke, over the past week or so following the end of the season.

Earlier this week, the 25-year-old defender checked on Cola Canyon in Peru before the former Fulham man headed to one of the Seven Wonders of the World with his girlfriend.

And Smalling couldn’t resist a cheeky selfie with Machu Picchu in the background, which he later posted on his Instagram page.

Smalling wrote: “Machu Picchu with this one @samcookephotography #peru”

The United defender also showcased his penchant for an abstract photo after he uploaded a second snap of the iconic hilltop ruins.
