He might be spending a lot of time training and playing football, but Fernando Torres never looks happier than when he is spending time with his family.
The 28-year-old sportsman enjoyed a sunny holiday in Ibiza with his wife Olalla and their two children – three-year-daughter Nora and one-year-old son Leo.
The quartet were spotted soaking up the Spanish sunshine at a nearby beach earlier this week, where Torres' childhood sweetheart showed off her enviable figure.

Wearing a pink and purple patterned bikini, Olalla looked happy to be spending some quality time with her husband and even gave him a shoulder massage as they relaxed in the sea.
She wore her dark hair up in a high ponytail to make sure it didn't get wet as she kept a close eye on the couple's children while they splashed around in the water.
Torres, meanwhile, showed off his toned physique in a
pair of navy blue and white swimming shorts which he wore with dark
sunglasses and later teamed with a navy blue T-shirt.

He certainly looked like the doting father as he comforted his young daughter, who looked adorable in pink bikini bottoms.
He later spent time playing with his children on the beach as they built a sand castle while their mother looked on.
The holiday was no doubt a welcome break
for Torres after Chelsea were left humbled last Friday when they were
thrashed 4-1 by Atletico Madrid at the UEFA Super Cup in Monaco.
Torres faced his old club during the
game at the Stade Louis II stadium, which paired the winners of this
year's Champions League and Europa League against each other.

However, Torres didn't let the defeat keep him down for long as his football team are still top of the Premier League and he has rediscovered his scoring form after a lackluster couple of seasons.
Torres now believes he is justifying his 50 million price tag, telling The Guardian: 'I'm here because I have an important part to play for this team.
'I couldn't say a bad word about Chelsea. They made a big effort to buy me and I have a lot of things still to do for this club. We've won the Champions League but hopefully we can win it one more time at least. There's plenty I still want to do. I'm not going to give up. I never did, and I'm not about to.'
