Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen may have retired from the game, but he’s still very connected to the sport. You’ll often hear him commentating on numerous world leagues. He’s also pretty active on social media. Recently, Pietersen and his family took a break and went on a vacation to the Maldives. KP and his wife Jessica, seemed to enjoy their time away from work, lounging at the Amilla Fushi island resort. Though it is a holiday, for a career sportsperson, it is hard to stay away from any game.
KP shared a video of himself attempting to recreate the ‘SIII’ celebration popularised by none other than Cristiano Ronaldo. Pietersen took a short run on a pier and jumped high in the air with his arms crossed. He then twisted in the air with his arms flailing around as he landed in the water with a splash. Pietersen tried his best no doubt, but unfortunately for him, the stunt didn’t work out as planned and even he acknowledges it.

Swimming with this beauty this morning here at @amillafushi. #AmillaFushi #Amilla #IslandBliss #Maldives
The Pietersens were pretty amazed by the Maldives and shared pictures and videos of their tour of the island. While Jessica and their kids featured on a few shots, we think that the coolest one was perhaps the video of a sea turtle.
