Thibaut Nicolas Marc Courtois (Dutch pronunciation: [tibo kurtwa]; French pronunciation: ​[tibo kuʁtwa]; born 11 May 1992) is a Belgian professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for English Premier League club Chelsea and the Belgium national team.

Courtois graduated through the youth system of his local side Genk, and progressed into the senior team, where at the tender age of 18, he played a key role in the team's Belgian Pro League victory. In July 2011 Courtois joined Chelsea for a reported £8 million, and was immediately loaned to Atlético Madrid. Courtois spent three highly successful seasons on loan with Atlético, winning the Europa League in 2012, the Copa del Rey in 2013 and the La Liga title in 2014. He also won the Ricardo Zamora Trophy, awarded to the best goalkeeper in La Liga, for his performances in the 2012–13 and 2013–14 seasons. Courtois returned to Chelsea in July 2014, and in his first season he helped them win the League Cup and the Premier League title.

Courtois made his senior international debut in October 2011, becoming the youngest ever goalkeeper to represent Belgium. He has since earned over 40 caps and appeared at the 2014 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2016.
