Robin Van Persie has posted a video of him playing no-look tennis with Dutch assistant boss Patrick Kluivert on a trip to the beach in Brazil with their families.

The video features the Netherlands pair engaging in some pretty impressive tennis skills. It seems football is not the extent of the deadly duo’s talents.

Both were enjoying some down time ahead of their quarter-final clash with Costa Rica on Saturday evening.

Van Persie, the Netherlands captain, was substituted during their 2-1 last 16 win over Mexico with his replacement Klaas-Jan Huntelaar setting up the equaliser before slotting the winning penalty late on.
