Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney has been pictured flying on budget airline Jet2, as he heads to Ibiza to unwind following a dismal Euro 2016 performance.
The Spanish island seems a popular holiday destination for Rooney, who spent thousands of pounds to hire a yacht there during his stag do in 2008. But today the star, who earns £250,000 a week, was seen on an airline that flies to the island for fares as low as £88.
After playing his part in a national embarrassment, when he captained England to a 2-1 loss against Iceland on Monday, Rooney would be forgiven if he chose to keep his head down for a few days. Instead, he's been back in the public eye, posing for pictures with fans while on his flight with wife Coleen (scroll down to see).

The England captain, like many of his teammates, will be taking a short holiday before the hard work begins again in July. Manchester United will likely be put through a gruelling pre-season regime by new boss Jose Mourinho.
Last season the ex-Chelsea manager made the mistake of letting his players off easy over the summer, which led to a number of poor performances from the champions at the start of the campaign. He won't be making the same mistake at Old Trafford again this year.
United will be part of the International Champions Cup tournament in July, facing both Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City before the season begins. A third match was announced today, that will see the Red Devils play Galatasaray before returning home to England.
Fans will be expecting big things from Rooney and his club mates, as Mourinho looks to lead Manchester United into a new era of success next term.
