Reece James has provided an update on his summer fitness regime after an injury-hit season with Chelsea.

The Blues captain spent the majority of the campaign on the sidelines with a hamstring injury. James suffered the injury in December last year and spent more than four months in recovery after undergoing surgery.

James also spent the first two months of last season recovering from a hamstring injury, before opting to undergo surgery before the turn of the year.

The injuries restricted the Chelsea captain to making just 10 appearances in the Premier League under former manager Mauricio Pochettino and 11 in all competitions.

The right-back made his return from injury in the final weeks of the season. Now James has provided an update on how he is spending his summer break.

In a video posted on Twitter, formerly known as X, James could be seen filming himself while out for a run. The camera then panned to show James at Santa Monica beach in Los Angeles, California, as the Chelsea skipper enjoyed the sunshine in the United States.

James will be making his return across the Atlantic later this summer when Chelsea take part in their pre-season tour of the United States.

James will captain the Blues in friendly matches against Wrexham, Celtic, Club America, Real Madrid and Manchester City, will all six fixtures taking place stateside.

This summer will also see James work with new Chelsea boss Enzo Maresca, who will take charge of pre-season training next month. James will look to enjoy an injury-free campaign in Maresca's first season at Stamford Bridge, as the Blues look to challenge for major honours including the Premier League and Europa Conference League for the first time in the club's history.
