Willian has used his time away from football to take a holiday in Israel and get baptised in the River Jordan.
Deeply religious, the Chelsea star is a devout Christian and shared images of the symbolic act to his 8.7m followers on Instagram.
“Joy in reaffirming my baptism, in a place that I consider extremely important. Jordan river!” he wrote, alongside a series of pictures.
The River, which runs along the border between Jordan, the Palestinian West Bank, Israel and southwestern Syria, is where Jesus Christ is believed to have been baptised and is one of the most holiest sites in the Christian faith.
And after posting the pictures, his fellow professionals from Diego Costa, to Lucas Moura and Rivaldo, applauded him.
“Glory to God! How wonderful, my brother. I’ll still know this place,” Tottenham star Moura wrote.
