An interesting photo of Real Madrid star – Isco -began circulating on social media in the last few days and it had people questioning its authenticity.
I suppose the best way to approach anything you come across on the internet is with a bit of caution as trollers come up with new and more sophisticated ways to trick us.
Well, the image of Isco looking a little more plump than usual is in fact a fake and the 28-year-old attacking midfielder isn’t quite as dishevelled as the image would have you think.
What have Real Madrid been doing to Isco?! He’s turned into the Spanish Hagrid 😂😭😂 pic.twitter.com/D2qxOCpz44

Despite the image being doctored it didn’t take long for it to do the rounds and some people likened the Madrid star to Harry Potter character Hagrid while others opted for a more regal approach.
In the image Isco looks to be carrying some extra weight and has a bushy, untidy beard which got some people thinking he looked like King Robert Baratheon of Game of Thrones.

Either way, the comparisons were funny and the real image has surfaced that makes the football look more like WWE star Seth Rollins than Isco himself.
Not sure if that's Isco or Seth Rollins pic.twitter.com/8QIiqvVTG7
