TOM BRADY is home alone preparing for Sunday's Super Bowl after sending his supermodel wife and kids out of town.
The 43-year-old legend is chasing a seventh title when his Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Kansas City Chiefs in their own stadium.
And, to help him in his quest, Brady was left to his own devices in his rented £22m Florida mansion by Brazilian supermodel partner Gisele Bundchen.
The quarterback said: “I really had an empty house for what will be 12 days leading up to the game.
“That’s the most time I’ve had to really focus on what I need to do from a football standpoint.
“It’s a home game so we’re staying in our own homes and you don’t have to eat hotel food for a week.”
Brady is in a record 10th Super Bowl and his first with Tampa Bay having left the New England Patriots last year after two glittering decades, but he’s not ready to retire just yet.
"I think it's going to be hard to walk away whenever I decide to walk away because it's been a huge part of my life for a long time," he added.
“The best part about winning is having the people that have helped you get there and supported you there with you to enjoy it.
“Some of the best memories I've had in my life are being with my kids right after the Super Bowl and celebrating with them – I hope we have that experience on Sunday.”

Brady added: “My son, who is 10, his Portuguese is amazing. My eight-year-old daughter is fluent in Portuguese. Unfortunately, their dad is way behind in his understanding of how to speak the language.
“I can usually understand a lot of things my wife will say – 'Papai nao sabe de nada,' which means 'Daddy doesn't know anything.' I usually get that a lot in the house.”
Former NFL kicker Morten Anderson, speaking on behalf of BonusCodeBets.co.uk:
"I played against Brady and it was a really tall task. You kind of know that if he has the ball in the last five minutes of the fourth quarter and it's a close game then he's going to deliver his magic.
"Winning the first Super Bowl in 2001 was key. That made everybody buy in and then they had a real influx of quality players who wanted to play there.
"As we age we have to change our behaviours, manage our bodies better and be smarter. The the No 1 goal of any player to stay healthy. It's the most difficult thing to do but he's been able to skirt any serious injuries and manage his body.
"His diet is spot on, he gets his rest, he knows what he needs to do."
