This image appeared on Twitter this morning of Smalling signing a Manchester United shirt while on a strecher.
It’s come from Indonesian news outlet Indonesia in Love, who have more than 5m Twitter followers.
A message attached to the tweet reads: “Chris Smalling stung by jellyfish in Bali while surfing.”
But United insist he WASN’T stung by a jellyfish – and that he fainted after suffering food poisoning.
A statement read: “Manchester United can clarify Chris Smalling has had food poisoning during his holiday which resulted in him fainting on Sunday.
