While his Arsenal teammates were claiming their second pre-season trophy of the summer, talisman Alexis Sanchez was training hard on the beach ahead of his return to north London.
The former Barcelona man, who enjoyed a wonderful debut campaign on English soil last time round, posted two short videos of himself on the beach...but he certainly wasn't relaxing.
The Chilean international, of course, is set to join up with the rest of his Gunners teammates in the immediate future, having been handed an extended break after starring for his national side in their Copa America success earlier this summer.

And he's looking in fantastic shape ahead of the new season, which will no doubt excite the Arsenal faithful, who will be hoping that he can lead them to Premier League success in 2015/16.
Clearly, then, Sanchez is fully focussed on the upcoming campaign, but will have to watch from the sidelines when his side kick off the new season with a home clash against West Ham on August 9.
Sanchez can be the inspiration
One thing's for sure, Arsenal fans will be hoping that Sanchez continues to excel in England's elite division.
Ultimately, while big names like Radamel Falcao and Angel di Maria failed to prove their credentials last term, Sanchez was mesmerising for the Gunners, but may well have to up his game even further next time round.
And there's no reason why he won't be able to do just that. In fact, he must believe that he can replicate Eden Hazard's success of last season and become the leading man for the Gunners in their quest to overhaul Chelsea at the summit of the Premier League table.
With former Blue Petr Cech in goal for Arsene Wenger's side for the upcoming campaign, Arsenal will certainly be growing in confidence that they can finally reclaim the title, but they will need their main man to find his best form once again.
