Man United star Chris Smalling admitted to hospital in Bali

One of the stranger stories of the summer.

But all has not been going to plan.

Pictures have emerged of the former Fulham stopper on a drip in hospital while on a stretcher.



United are reportedly ‘investigating’ the incident which surely has to go down as one of the more freakish accidents to happen on holiday.
