itemprop="headline name">No divers please! 5 things we spotted as England's World Cup stars make a splash in the pool

If Monday was all about business for England, then Tuesday was all about pleasure.

Gareth Southgate's men enjoyed a recovery session at their team base in Repino a day after their dramatic 2-1 victory over Tunisia in Volgograd , with Harry Kane's late, late header sending supporters wild both in Russia and back at home.

And with Sunday's game against Panama next up, several England stars took to the pool to recover from the aches and pains of their hard-fought victory.

And to ride on inflatable unicorns, obviously.

England might have got off to a fast start in their group, but there was no way Kieran Trippier, Jordan Pickford, Jesse Lingard and Harry Maguire were going to go anywhere quickly during their epic - and surely very slow - inflatable unicorn race.

Of the four, it is is Trippier who looks to be taking it the most seriously as he stands up and tries to get the most out of his steed, but given that he's already lost a bit of ground to Maguire then it's not looking good for the Spurs man.

He could still win it by a horn though.

Golakeeper Pickford got a hand to that Ferjani Sassi penalty in Volgograd, but he couldn't keep hold of his new inflatable friend here.

Instead, the Everton stopper let the unicorn spill from his grasp, resulting in the type of helpless dive that no keeper wants to make.

Leicester's Maguire caught the attention in the Tunisia game with his frequent forays forward, even if plenty of them weren't entirely convincing.

He looked convincing here though, striding out in front in the aforementioned inflatable unicorn race and really beginning to make it his own.

Meanwhile, on the far left, Trippier has fallen at the first fence.

Lingard couldn't quite get it right in front of goal against Tunisia, but he made sure to show that he's lost none of his appetite for a good shot.

The Manchester United man snapped photos of his club teammate Ashley Young as the players relaxed by the pool, and judging by the positions he was taking up then he seems to be treating it pretty seriously.

There was none of this messing about for Harry Kane though, as the England skipper simply relaxed by the side of the pool and watched his troops enjoy themselves like a proud father at a school swimming gala.

Holding his phone, Kane was no doubt checking the images of the wild celebrations from England fans back home that greeted his two goals against Tunisia, and dreaming of just how many goals he can score against Panama.

His attempt to win the Golden Boot at this World Cup has started swimmingly, as has England's tournament.
