17th July 2021

Good times never seemed so good! Topless Kyle Walker swings his shirt round his head as he leads England stars Mason Mount, Luke Shaw, and Declan Rice in belting out Euro 2020 anthem Sweet Caroline while all on holiday together in Mykonos

  • The four England team-mates all started the European Championship final against Roberto Mancini’s Italy
  • But Gareth Southgate’s side lost 3-2 on penalties against the Azzurri as the tournament ended in heartache
  • Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline became a popular tune and unofficial England anthem during the tournament 
  • Several Three Lions players, including Jack Grealish and Ben Chilwell, are also on holiday on the Greek island
  • Mykonos is the scene of Manchester United and England star Harry Maguire’s street fight arrest last year 

England stars Mason Mount, Luke Shaw, Kyle Walker and Declan Rice have been shown together singing along passionately to Sweet Caroline on holiday in Mykonos after Euro 2020.

The Three Lions were doubted before the European Championship but reached the competition final, eventually losing agonisingly 3-2 on penalties against Italy.

Mount, Shaw, Walker and Rice all started the tournament showpiece at Wembley, with Shaw scoring after just two minutes, but Leonardo Bonucci equalised in the second half before the dreaded spot-kicks.

But the England side now have the chance to go on holiday before the start of the new Premier League season on August 13, and the four have clearly linked up together to enjoy some rest and recuperation.

The social media video shows Chelsea midfielder Mount, his close friend and West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, Manchester United left back Shaw, and Manchester City right back Kyle Walker all enjoying each other’s company on the Greek island.

Mount, Rice and Shaw are sat down at a long table enjoying a meal, while a remix of American artist Neil Diamond’s famous song Sweet Caroline is pumped out over the sound system, with Shaw and Mount banging the table in time to the beat.

As the pre-chorus starts, a topless Walker, holding his shirt in one hand and clearly having the time of his life, comes over to the table with his arms outstretched, encouraging his team-mates to sing along.

Mount then joins in, as Shaw laughs and Walker twirls his shirt around his head, and Mount and Walker shout out the chorus joyously with Rice filming it on his phone; former Love Island contestant and Lions’ Den presenter Josh Denzel was also there.

Sweet Caroline became the informal anthem of Euro 2020 and therefore the unofficial soundtrack to England’s summer when Gareth Southgate’s players went over to the fans and belted out the song after beating Denmark in the semi-final.

Sportsmail reported on Friday that several Three Lions players had jetted off to Mykonos on a lads’ holiday to cure their Euro heartache, with Jack Grealish, Kalvin Phillips, Ben Chilwell and Ben White also travelling there.

Aston Villa attacking midfielder Grealish and Chelsea left back Chilwell, who are both part of the ‘Avengers’ friendship group that includes fellow footballers James Maddison, Ross Barkley and John McGinn, were photographed together on the Greek island.

Grealish, a popular member of the England squad, also posed for photographs in other Instagram stories. The 25-year-old appears to have been partying ever since he was relieved from Three Lions duty, as he photographed himself taking shots the day after the final.  

Midfielder Mount, who played a significant role in England’s route to the final, was seen partying in the background of former Love Island star Josh Denzel’s Instagram story at the Principote Beach Club on Thursday night.

The club is visited by several celebrities, including England international Dele Alli. Denzel was the main presenter of the daily Three Lions show that was run by the official England media team throughout the tournament.    

Grealish was also pictured with Denzel’s group, meaning he could have socialised together with Mount and Denzel at the Principote Beach Club. 

Meanwhile, Ben White and Phillips – who were both part of the England set-up and are former team-mates at Leeds United – are also on the Greek island and enjoyed a meal at Mykonos’ Salt Bae restaurant.

The eatery is located at the west of the island, around five kilometers where Denzel and other England stars are believed to be partying. 

White also posted images of him relaxing by his villa pool. The Brighton defender, who is being chased by Arsenal this summer, was a last-minute addition to Gareth Southgate’s 26-man squad but did not feature for the Three Lions at the summer tournament.

The restaurant is popular among celebrities and influencers, particularly footballers. France forward Kylian Mbappe attended the Mykonos restaurant last week, while Roberto Mancini – who led Italy to success at Euro 2020 – has visited the iconic venue in the past.  

The holiday destination is where centre back Harry Maguire was arrested for a bar fight in August 2020.

Manchester United centre back Maguire was found guilty assaulting police, verbal abuse, and attempted bribery but has appealed all three.

Maguire was given a suspended sentence of 21 months and 10 days in prison but lodged an official appeal at his convictions


Harry Maguire was arrested by a team of undercover police drafted in from mainland Greece to target organised crime in Mykonos last summer.

The incident was sparked after claims that the England star’s sister had been injected with a substance by two Albanian men as they waited for a minibus in the Fabrika part of the island. 

As a result a brawl broke out – including his brother Joe and friend Christopher Sharman. 

The 28-year-old – who was found guilty of assaulting and trying to bribe Greek police – denied the accusations and claimed he was the victim just hours after the court ruling. 

Maguire also told the BBC that he thought he was being kidnapped by fake police in Mykonos and that he tried to run away ‘in fear for his life’ after they hit him in the legs and told him he ‘won’t play again’. 

Maguire launched an immediate appeal after being given a suspended prison sentence for his part in the brawl on the holiday island.  

Under Greek law an appeal will see Maguire given a retrial with the higher tribunal having up to eight years to hear the case.

However, when it does that place, Maguire will face a three-member panel of appeals court judges on the island of Syros. 

Despite the fact the legal proceedings could take place as late as 2028,  Panaghiotis Poulios – the island’s chief prosecutor – has said he wants the case to closed sooner rather than later.  

The hearing is likely to be postponed this year as the country’s judicial system has stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The England defender told the BBC soon after that plain-clothed police officers, who did not identify themselves, pulled over his group’s minibus in Mykonos, threw him off the bus, hit him on his legs and told him his career was over. 

England forwards Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho, soon-to-be team-mates at Manchester United, went to green-listed Caribbean destination Turks and Caicos after both spoke out against the vile racist abuse they received after the Euro final.

They have flown to Providenciales, a picturesque island in the Atlantic Ocean, which is on the UK Government’s green list and will provide the Three Lions stars with the perfect backdrop while they soak up the sun.

The players are said to have travelled with a rapper called Chibz Artist. Rashford is thought to have recently split up with his girlfriend Lucia Loi after eight years together, while Sancho is not known to currently have a partner. 

Rashford and Sancho were filmed by musician Chibz Artist on Snapchat boarding a private jet, and looked in high spirits while rapping away inside the jaw-droppingly sleek cabin.
