The Dutch ace was fishing off the side of a boat while enjoying his family holiday in Turkey – and hooked himself a mini version of Jaws!
The future of Manchester United striker Robin van Persie may well be up in the air – but maybe it should be at sea.
The Dutch ace, 31, proved himself more than just a master poacher while on a family holiday in Turkey, after hooking himself a shark while fishing.
And the former Arsenal star also managed to bring the shark and her pups to the surface, before freeing her back into the ocean.
On his Facebook page, the Dutch international wrote: “Our kids love to fish and haven’t stopped asking to go out deep sea fishing this holiday.
“Unaware this was going to be our best fishing day ever!!! What a catch! Nobody got hurt and of course we released the shark.”
