Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been brought back down to earth by fellow Reds Premier League winner Dejan Lovren after flyboarding on holiday.
The England star pictured himself walking on water on a luxury holiday in Ibiza, where he is relaxing with pop star girlfriend Perrie Edwards.
As fans submerged the 26-year-old with messages of admiration on Instagram, former Liverpool defender Lovren was all at sea.

The side’s ex-captain, who set sail for Russian champions Zenit St Petersburg for a fee of around £11m last month, retorted: ‘I am surprised you found your balance.’
Responding in front of his following of almost five million on the platform, Oxlade-Chamberlain replied: ‘That’s rich coming from you, ice skates.’
Lovren and Oxlade-Chamberlain both collected winners’ medals after helping the club cruise to its first Premier League title in 30 years in June.

The winger made waves by scoring four goals in the league and three in the Champions League, but Lovren only surfaced from the bench occasionally, making ten appearances across the campaign.
Both players were passengers in the Champions League final last season, when Liverpool made a splash by decking Tottenham 2-0 to lift the trophy.
Out-of-favour Lovren’s time at the club had been on the rocks for a while thanks to the form of Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip, but he is clearly still close to some of the champions’ stars.
Liverpool’s Champions League campaign ran aground this season when they were knocked out by Atletico Madrid, allowing Oxlade-Chamberlain to take a break with Little Mix singer Edwards before the new season starts on September 12.
