27-year-old Arsenal FC hitman, Alexis Sanchez has taken to Twitter to reveal some photos of the ankle injury he suffered during extra-time in the Copa America final win over Argentina as he recuperates in a New York hospital.
The Chile international was substituted after 104 minutes of the match at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey which Chile went on to win following a penalty shoot-out in the wake of a heavy tackle by Gabriel Mercado.
Sanchez posted the photos on social media and captioned it: ‘Fourth day of my vacation, locked up in the hotel bored hahaha…. But I’m already much better.’
The Gunners forward then made another post, saying: ‘Your body can endure almost everything… it is your mind that you have to convince’.
