Stoke’s Peter Crouch reached some impressive football landmarks last season, but his latest tweet might be his most successful contribution of the year.
The 36-year-old scored seven league goals during the 2016/17 campaign, reaching 100 Premier League goals as well as becoming the first footballer to score 50 headers in the competition.
And after helping Stoke comfortably retain their top-flight status with a 13th-place finish, the nation’s favourite big lad up front had earned himself a holiday.

Oh Peter – that’s social media gold and you knew it.
Ian Wright’s a man who knows his way around a goal, just like Crouchy.
Meanwhile, broadcaster Mark Clemmit made a course straight for the puns.
Coming up with a better headline for that photo will be a tall order.— Mark Clemmit (@MarkClemmit) June 19, 2017
It’s a great tweet, Peter. A great tweet.

Former 400m hurdler Matt Elias declared Crouch the winner of Twitter – no complaints here.
