After recent visits to the best restaurants in Italy, Michael Jordan and his wife Yvette Prieto have been enjoying downtime alone on a yacht.
There is currently a heat wave in Europe and Jordan was recently photographed fanning himself while having lunch in Sardinia.
This time, however, he stayed on the yacht and tried to keep cool in a white bucket hat while grabbing a bite to eat with his wife and twin daughters. Temperatures in Italy have topped 100 degrees recently.
Jordan, 60, was photographed sitting at his dining table with his children, while his wife Yvette, 44, was seen walking around the yacht in her sportswear.
While in Europe, Jordan met up with some old friends from the NBA and Hollywood.

Jordan, the NBA legend, is on a trip with his wife Yvette Prieto and their twin daughters.
The temperature has been soaring lately across Europe and Italy had been in 100 degree heat.
Prieto, 44, was seen waving to a friendly face on the shore from the yacht.
Jordan and Prieto, 60, have recently been spotted in some of the best restaurants in Italy.
Last week, he was photographed dining with Magic Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson at the famous Lemon Tree restaurant in Capri.
The three friends were humorously serenaded by the restaurant’s band, and Johnson shared a funny video of him and Jordan smiling as the band played for them.
“Tonight we enjoyed an amazing dinner at the world famous Da Paolino Ristorante, also known as the Lemon Tree Restaurant in Capri, Italy,” Johnson wrote in an Instagram post.
“And I got to hang out with my great friend and the greatest basketball player that ever lived, Michael Jordan, and his wife Yvette, Sam (Samuel L Jackson) and LaTanya Jackson, Judge Greg and Linda Mathis, and John and Vicki Palmer.”
Jordan and his wife Prieto tend to keep a low profile.
The couple met at a Miami nightclub in 2008, and Jordan proposed to the Cuban-born model three years later.
They married in 2013 and a year later welcomed their daughters, who are now nine.
Before heading to Italy, MJ and Yvette were in Paris and were filmed leaving a restaurant when Jordan was asked if he approved of his 32-year-old son Marcus dating Larsa Pippen, the 49-year-old ex-wife of Jordan’s Bulls teammate Scottie Pippen.
Prieto was seen walking around the yacht in his workout gear as Jordan relaxed.
He also had a pair of binoculars to entertain himself during some downtime.
Jordan and his family were spotted in Paris before heading to Sardinia as part of their getaway.
Between laughs, he said: ‘No!’.
Then, on a recent episode of Marcus and Larsa’s podcast, both halves of the couple shared their unfiltered reactions to Michael’s comment.
For one thing, Marcus was ‘dying laughing’ at Michael’s comment, which was ‘hilarious to me’ because ‘I know my dad, right?’
Larsa, on the other hand, “didn’t think it was funny”, found “nothing funny about it” and seemed taken aback that Marcus saw the humor in the situation.
Marcus explained that ‘my whole family, we are all competitive. The Jordans, like, part of our DNA is to talk shit, you know? And it gets us going. It motivates us.
When he heard what Michael said about Larsa, “I immediately thought, ‘Like, he’s playing. He’s joking, he’s joking, he’s laughing. He’s, you know, he’s just playing.’
Marcus added joking that his father might have been “a little turned on” on tequila at Parisian restaurant Matignon the night of his viral dig at Larsa.
