There were no heart-stopping moments for Joe Cole and Liverpool on Tuesday as the England midfielder gave the thumbs-up after passing his routine medical without a hitch.
The former Chelsea player flew out to join his new team-mates at the club’s pre-season training camp in Switzerland on Monday.
But Cole had to be put through his paces by Dr Peter Brukner, Liverpool’s head of sports medicine and sports science, before he could seal his £80,000-a-week move to Anfield.
And, as these pictures show, fans on the Kop could breathe a sigh of relief as the 28-year-old passed his medical with flying colours.
Meanwhile, Carly Cole (nee Zucker) took the DIY approach as she packed up her London home ready for her move to Liverpool.
The 26-year-old showed no fear of getting stuck in as she loaded bags, a cot and baby carrier into a car outside her house, assisted by her family.
Carly, the wife of England footballer Joe Cole, is set to move up north with her husband and their four-month-old daughter Ruby after Cole was bought by Liverpool FC from Chelsea.
And being a fitness instructor, Carly clearly had no qualms about working up a sweat as she steadfastly made countless trips back and forth with her family's household possessions.
At one point she was seen hoisting a white cot down the steps of her property, helped by two female members of her family.
She even managed to crack a smile after managing to carry the cumbersome item to the car.
But her driver then stepped in and helped the ladies lift it into the boot.
The task in hand did appear to take its toll on the former I'm A Celebrity star, however, and she did have to take a few breathers in between trips.
Carly will now be living near the likes of Coleen Rooney and Alex Gerrard, whose footballer husbands Wayne and Steven play for Manchester United and Liverpool respectively.
