Thibaut Courtois showed off his stag do costume on social media as he jetted off on his ‘bachelor weekend’ dressed as iconic video game character Luigi on Thursday.
The Real Madrid goalkeeper, who shared details of his wedding to model fiancée Mishel Gerzig back in March, uploaded an Instagram story of him surrounded by friends, as he sported Luigi’s full attire and trademark moustache.
Courtois captioned the story ‘Bachelor weekend’ with a plane emoji and included a graphic of the cartoon plumber clapping.
None of Courtois’ Real Madrid team-mates were spotted on the plane, although the Belgian revealed in March that Los Blancos president Florentino Perez would be invited to the wedding.
He claims to have a good relationship with the Real Madrid chief, who regrettably waved farewell to club legend Karim Benzema ahead of his £258million move to Saudi Arabian champions Al-Ittihad earlier this week.

Israeli model Gerzig, who has been dating Courtois since the summer of 2021, told Vanity Fair in March: ‘We have invited Florentino Perez to our wedding and we hope he can come.’
Courtois added: ‘I get along well. He’s the boss. He wants us to win. I like his style, he’s very close.
‘He doesn’t miss a game, something I haven’t seen before in any director. He demands a lot from you, but he’s a great president. He has achieved everything.
‘It’s not like we send each other WhatsApps, but we talk before and after the games.
‘In the box, he always comes over to chat with Mishel, with the families of the other players.’
Before the goalkeeper jetted out for his bachelor weekend, Courtois, Gerzig and their friends attended the Carlos Sainz Karting Centre in Madrid.
The Belgian goalkeeper claimed first spot on the podium and shared a story of him celebrating with champagne in true Formula One style.

Gerzig appeared to be celebrating her hen do as well, as she and her friends uploaded several photographs to Instagram, with one captioned: ‘My best friend and almost bride.’
Courtois admitted it’s difficult for he and Gerzig to enjoy their private lives in the Spanish capital, as they are recognised all the time.
‘It’s hard for us to go incognito, yes,’ he added back in March. ‘Walking down Gran Via? Complicated, even if we wear a cap and sunglasses. But we like to be spontaneous. We go with the flow.’
Gerzig continued by revealing that their wedding will be in a private, romantic location, adding: ‘We already have the date, a magical place. It will be a private, romantic and fun ceremony, with a big party where there will be music.’
