thumbnail Hello,

Also, Joleon Lescott and Ashley Williams share the joys of parenthood whilst Noel Hunt does little to quell the suggestion that all footballers are pampered dolts

With Euro 2012 done and dusted it is time for players - international class or otherwise - to return to their clubs ahead of the new domestic season.

Some of the Premier League's finest are already back at work it seems, though many have managed to squeeze in some extra holiday before training begins.

So, here is Goal.com's look at what our favorite footballers are up to before we are reunited over pre-season. Feast your eyes on Word on the Tweet...


"My holiday have officially started today. Ill start it by going to have lunch in the best restaurant in London before i fly to INDONESIA!!!!"
Barcelona and Spain midfielder Cesc Fabregas is back in London...but don't get excited Arsenal fans, he's only back to sample the restaurants before a deserved holiday.


"Back home. In need of a nap. 300 yards was never my distance. Wiped out #goalhanger"
Gary Lineker enjoyed the honour of carrying the Olympic flame on Tuesday, but it seems his time on the couch as a pundit might have ruined his fitness...


"Things to do before I die.... Feed snow leopards. Great day!!"
Meanwhile, Aston Villa youth product Eric Lichaj has the oddest aims in life.


"Kids got me walking to beach in this heat then complain about the sand being to hot, there less the 20 seconds. Damn Kids"
Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott is finally on holiday after a disappointing Euro 2012 and appears to be really enjoying the company of his children.


"1, Handy Manny episode and 2, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episodes that's been my morning! Oh and 1 dirty nappy! Hahaha off for a swim and run!"
And Swansea's Ashley Williams doesn't make parenting seem any more glamourous in this tweet either.


"Definition of Stupid!! Just remembering iv left my passport in a car in Clare!! While I'm in Drogheda 200km away with a flight at 7 tonight!"
Noel Hunt here conforming to the cliche about footballers being absent-minded...


"10 hours till training begins again. #LikeAKidOnChristmasEve. Good night tweeps.......!"
Whilst Newcastle's Ryan Taylor says he is looking forward to starting training again. I wonder just how many times he had to stop running to throw up?


"Need a left back Asap? Any ideas tweeps cheap young quick?? #fm12"
Reading striker Adam Le Fondre hasn't taken up a new role as the club's chief scout but is having a go at the popular management simulator. Something to think about when he hangs up his boots


"Can't believe Blackpool have let the main man @B1orm10 go. Pleasure playing in same team mate"
And finally, Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam expresses disappointment at Brett Ormerod's Blackpool exit. If Reds fans get their way Charlie you might well be joining him at Wrexham.
