I'm not standing! Elton John is CARRIED to the beach after a boat trip with husband David Furnish and their sons in Italy

They're currently enjoying the Mediterranean climes in Porto Cervo, Italy.

And Elton John proved to be in ultimate relaxation mode on Saturday, as he was carried onto the beach after an idyllic boat trip.

The singer, 71, was spotted being lifted on the sand by his guards, as he prepared for another fun-filled day out in Cala Di Volpe with his husband David Furnish and their boys Zachary, seven, and Elijah, five.

As eldest son Zachary watched on, the Your Song crooner was escorted onto the sand by his guards, before the pair set off along the shore together.

Elton wore a £440 Gucci 'Black Cat' T-shirt, £670 grey Gucci shorts and a pair of typically loud yellow glasses, while Zachary looked smart in a white polo shirt and lime green swimming shorts emblazoned with turtles.

He held his fathers hand as they walked in the sun to meet other dad David, 55, and brother Elijah.

David wore an all-white ensemble with a wicker sun hat, while Elijah sported luminous shorts and a yellow and white tee.

The group congregated for their family day out, with Zachary dutifully clutching on to his dad's hand and leading the singer along the surf.

Sir Elton recently claimed he is staying true to his working class roots when he brings up his two children with his husband.

The rocker, who has an estimated net worth of $450 million, told OK! magazine he is instilling the same values he was brought up with into their upbringing.

While Elton recognises being wealthy will have 'advantages' for bringing up his brood, he said values such as working for what you have is really important.

He explained to the magazine: 'They come from a well-off background, which will afford its own advantages.

'I came from a very working class background where I had to work for everything I got, and I want to instill those same values in them. But it's harder growing up in this world and David and I are very mindful of that.'

'They're fantastic young boys, they have good hearts and compassionate, kind personalities.'

Despite being one of the most iconic singers of all time, the musician confessed his sons would look upon him as a 'God' if he was a footballer. 

Although he said music doesn't 'rank so highly' as football in his son's eyes, the singer did reveal the kids get 'very excited' about going to his shows.

He elaborated: 'I'm no one special. If I was a footballer, I'd be God to them. What I do doesn't rank so highly!'
