Wish you were here? Arsene Wenger relaxes on Copacabana's sandy beaches

Arsene Wenger has been unwinding from the stresses and strains of Premier League football management by taking time out on Copacabana Beach in Brazil.

As these pictures show, Arsenal's manager made the most of the sandy beaches in Rio de Janeiro.

Arsenal are still in the process of pushing through a £30 million deal for Chile winger Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona. Reports in Spain suggest Barcelona have accepted Sanchez's desire to leave and head to London rather than Anfield.

Any last minute transfer issues could mean Wenger's time on the beach is cut short.
