Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois Travels 10,000 Miles to Watch New York Knicks & Super Bowl

Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois Travels 10,000 Miles to Watch New York Knicks & Super Bowl

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois enjoyed every sports fan’s dream weekend after travelling over 10,000 miles to America to take in some of the world’s biggest sporting events.

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!
