As football goes into a short hibernation period in Spain, the biggest stars across La Liga make the most of their time off.
Barcelona star Lionel Messi has acted no differently, being seen embracing his wife Antonella during a sun-kissed retreat over Christmas.
Messi looked the picture of relaxation as he cuddled up to his partner on Instagram, before testing out his skills against his son, Thiago.
The pair engaged in a game of Teqball in a short video shared by the Argentine on social media.
The ball must be returned to the opponent’s side of the table by touching it a maximum of three times.
A player cannot touch either the table or his opponents.
Players cannot touch the ball with the same part of their body more than once in a row.
During each play, a player can return the ball with the same body part no more than twice in a row.
Messi will hope he honed his skills enough ahead of his return to action after the festive period, against Getafe on January 6.
