OCCUPATIONAL HAZARD: Germany goalkeeper poses with a group of admirers while on holiday in Mykonos.

World Cup success has many benefits, not least being swamped by admirers as German football goalkeeper Manuel Neuer discovered in the Greek Islands.

Neuer has been holidaying in Mykonos with his girlfriend Kathrin Gilch but that didn't stop him taking time out for a quick photo request from a bevy of beautiful ladies at the beach.

He posted the shot on his Instagram account, captioned: "enjoying my vacation before it all starts again with @fcbayern!".

Neuer won the Golden Glove as the World Cup's best goalkeeper as he helped Germany end a 24-year drought with their 1-0 extra time victory over Argentina in the final.

Not surprisingly Neuer was granted extra leave by his club following the World Cup success but heads to New York this weekend to join up with the Bayern Munich squad for their preseason tour.

Meanwhile, injured Brazilian star Neymar's recovery from the back injury that ruled him out of the tournament continues.

He has been photographed with an entourage at the beaches of Formantera in Spain.

Neymar was wearing a large back brace under a shirt.

He is waiting to resume at the Barcelona club where he will team up with new singing, troubled Uruguay striker Luis Suarez, and Argentina's Lionel Messi.
