If this isn’t the most modern thing we’ve seen this year, we’ve yet to see it.
Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has revealed who his new girlfriend is… using Instagram Stories.
We’ve seen this summer that football clubs have been announcing new signings and transfer in increasingly wacky and inventive ways, but we’ve not seen a footballer announce a new girlfriend before.
However, Alexis is no ordinary footballer, and his love for the social media platform stretched as far as to revealing he is now going out with Chilean actress Mayte Rodriguez.
The Gunners man started his Insta Story with a video of himself, before panning round to show his new other half.
He followed it up with a couple of nice pictures of the couple enjoying their holiday, while the rest of his team-mates are in Australia preparing for the new season.
Sanchez was given time off after reaching the final of the Confederations Cup.
But the big question we’re all asking is: what next for Atom and Humber?
The duo of dogs have been by Sanchez’s side through thick and thin since his arrival in England, but here’s the good news – it looks like Sanchez’s new girlfriend is also a dog fan.
So there’s a relief.
Also, we’ll scan over the fact the new love in Alexis’ life is basically called ‘Mate’.
