Simon Mignolet has been working on his diving after the Liverpool goalkeeper went for a swim with his two new friends at Dubai Dolphinarium.

The 27-year-old Belgium goalkeeper tied the knot with his long-term partner Jasmien Claes in his hometown of Sint-Truiden last month.

The Reds shot stopper headed to Dubai on honeymoon with his new wife ahead of his return to pre-season training with Liverpool ahead of their tour of Asia and Australia.

And Mignolet uploaded the short clip above of the Liverpool goalkeeper going for a swim with a dolphin on his Facebook page on Tuesday evening.

Mignolet wrote: “Enjoyed my diving practice with my two new friends!”

However, the Liverpool goalkeeper was heavily criticised by some of his Facebook fans for visiting the Dubai Dolphinarium.

Some Facebook members urged the Reds shot stopper to educate himself with some simply writing the hashtag, #emptythecages.
