John Terry has been making the most of his trip to Portugal as he enjoyed a day of playing golf with his pals Max Evans, Peter Jones and Bradley Walsh.
The former footballer, 39, took a private jet to Portugal last week, evading the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s ban on travel to the country amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Taking to social media, the star posted a snap of the group on the course as he jokingly shared a few golf tips with some ‘how-to’ videos.

‘If anyone is needing any golf tips check out @bradderswalsh on the second video. See you on the Padel court @peterjonescbe @maxevans13 @crouchy’.
Rugby star Max, 36, who shared a snap to his account of the group playing Padel, commented ‘Mega Day’ on the post.
The gang appear to have been staying at the luxurious Quinto do Lago resort in the Algarve region.

Former footballer Peter Crouch also met up with the group on the holiday as Max shared a snap with him to his account.
It comes after John showed fans he was making the most of his time in the sunshine on Sunday, when he uploaded shots of himself and his wife Toni enjoying a scenic boat ride.
The former footballer proudly displayed his rippling abs, donning blue swimming shorts as he posed alongside his glamorous wife, 38, who wowed in a black string bikini.

John has much to celebrate during his pre-season holiday, as it takes place shortly after he helped Aston Villa avoid relegation from the Premier League.
He jetted off to Portugal despite the country remaining on the British government’s quarantine ‘red list’ – meaning arrivals must isolate for 14-days when they return.
The FCO advises against all non-essential travel the Portuguese mainland.
But regulations didn’t stop the sportsman, who was in understandably high spirits as he and his wife set off on their latest overseas holiday.

Taking to their respective Instagram accounts, the couple were pictured raising their glasses while settling into a pair of comfortable leather seats close to the jet’s cockpit.
With the mood light, Toni also shared a playful snap of her husband as the England legend grabbed forty winks during their flight to the Iberian Peninsula.
The pair even had a chance to pose in a waiting helicopter after arriving in Portugal, with former defender John flashing a grin while his wife sits alongside him.
Toni later shared a series of images and videos of their luxurious private villa, complete with outdoor swimming pool and generously sized patio seating area.

Having barely unpacked, they later made their way to Algarve eatery of choice, Maria’s Restaurant & Beach, where they dank wine while watching the sunset.
The couple were making the most of their Portuguese surroundings after John and Aston Villa head coach Dean Smith ensured their club’s Premier League survival following a turbulent season.
Villa narrowly avoided the drop thanks to a nail-biting final day draw against West Ham United at London Stadium.

The result guarantees them another season in the top flight, but John’s role as assistant remains uncertain with the retired footballer reportedly expressing an interest in Bristol City’s vacant manager’s position.
The former England captain, who is currently assistant to Dean Smith has made no secret of wanting to branch out and is attracted to the potential of the south-west England club.
John, however, is not alone in being excited about the idea of moving to Ashton Gate and Phil Neville, who will leave his post as England’s women manager as soon as the FA find a replacement, is also eager to be considered after initial contact with the Championship club.
