As a former rugby union player, you'd expect Mike Tindall to soak up the Rugby World Cup fever in Japan ahead of England's final this weekend. But when the sportsman revealed that his wife Zara had joined him abroad, fans were left pleasantly surprised. Mike shared the sweetest selfie of him and Zara on his Instagram stories, telling his followers that she had finally joined him in Japan – and it looks like they're having the best time!

Mike, who has been in Japan since mid-October, has been working on his show House of Rugby while away. But it looks like he is now taking time to explore his surroundings, enjoying some sightseeing with his wife Zara.

But while Zara has made the long journey to Japan, it is unclear whether their two daughters, Mia, five, and Lena, one, are with them. It has been assumed that Zara was staying at home in Gloucester with their daughters until now, while Mike works on his show.

The doting dad is making the most of his new Instagram account, which he created in September. However, he has so far kept his family life relatively apart from the account. Sharing a photo of himself and his co-stars presenting in Flat Iron Square, in London, he previously wrote: "Awesome second live show! Next stop Tokyo! It's gonna be fun!"
