Arsenal's Alex Sanchez has posted a series of videos on his Instagram account that shows the Chile forward training during his summer holiday.

Sanchez is not due back at Arsenal until August 3 after winning the 2015 Copa America but the Gunners have enjoyed a successful pre-season without their star man after winning the Barclays Asia Trophy and the Emirates Cup and giving their new signing Peter Cech his home debut against Wolfsburg.

Alexis Sanchez was filmed during his break running up and down the beach in an attempt to keep up his fitness levels. The 26-year-old netted 25 goals in his debut season for Arsene Wenger's side as they finished third in the Premier League, and also retained the FA Cup in which Sanchez scored a stunning goal.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain labelled Alexis Sanchez as Arsenal’s “Duracell bunny” due to his remarkable energy levels and manager Arsene Wenger has previously said “He is very positive, always wants to go forward, wants to hurt the opponent and he is also - what the fans like with him - a fighter. He is a guy who has a good combination of talent, combative aspect and fighting spirit.”
