Mesut Ozil is celebrating winning the World Cup with a bit of relaxation in the United States, and he just happened across the men's basketball team to shoot some hoops with them.

As the American team warms up in Las Vegas for their own World Cup, which takes place in Spain at the end of the month, Ozil just kicked back, hit a few jump shots and got his picture taken with the likes of Kevin Durant and Derrick Rose.

Ozil, along with Germany team-mates Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski, has been given an extended break by Arsenal before he returns to club duty.
