HARD man footballer-turned-actor Vinnie Jones has being showing off his Spanish language skills in a new ad that has gone viral on social networks.

Dressed in a colourful Hawaiian shirt in front of the Spanish flag, the former Wimbledon hatchet man reels off some useful Spanish phrases in his characteristic Cockney accent for Britons planning on visiting sunny Spain on holidays.

But Vinnie’s handy phrases are slightly removed from the usual ‘Donde esta la playa?’ (‘Where is the beach?’) remarks that regular guidebooks provide. In typical Jones style, he reels off phrases such as: ‘Hola cielo, como te va?’ (‘Alright sunshine, how you keeping?’), ‘Oye, me das otra cerveza por favor’ (‘Excuse me pal, can I have another beer please?’) and ‘Eh tio! Ven aqui para que salgas en este selfie’ (‘Oi! Come over here and get in this selfie mate!’).

Said Jones: “I’ve holidayed in Spain for years and you can’t beat it for sun, sea, sand and a few sangrias. Along the way I’ve managed to pick up a bit of the local lingo so it’s great to be able to share some with my fellow Brits and help them out as they prepare for their holiday.” Vinnie’s handy Spanish tips can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTmlR28lilk
