Aside from watching great sport, the Belgian keeper actually played a big part in the sporting weekend, after helping his Chelsea team-mates defeat Arsenal 3-1 in the weekend’s early Premier League kick-off at Stamford Bridge.
Most elite athletes would probably reckon that merited a hard-earned rest, but not Courtois.
Following the victory, he proceeded to travel across the Atlantic to sit court side at Madison Square Gardens for an 8:30pm to see the Knicks beat NBA Eastern Conference leaders Cleveland Cavaliers 111-104.

Then, presumably with Monday off, Courtois completed his sporting marathon in Houston, Texas, inside the NRG Stadium for American Football’s Super Bowl 51.
Amazingly, the 25-year-old former Atletico Madrid stopper was present for one of the greatest Super Bowls of all-time,as New England Patriots turned round a 26 point deficit to beat Atlanta Falcons in front of a stunned crowd.

We have no idea how much this trip cost – but it would probably take us several years to save up for it.
We currently don’t have any plans for next weekend, but we’re definitely hanging about with Thibaut Courtois!
