Courtroom Sketch Of Jamie Vardy From 'Wagatha Christie' Trial Goes Viral, It Could Be Even Worse Than Wayne Rooney's
| Last updated
A courtroom sketch of Jamie Vardy supporting his wife Rebekah Vardy during her legal battle against Coleen Rooney has gone viral on social media.
Leicester striker Vardy attended court on Tuesday to support his wife during her ongoing libel case against Rooney.
Coleen Rooney has accused Rebekah Vardy of leaking her family's private information as well as false stories to The Sun – claiming she identified her as the culprit responsible following a sting operation on social media.
Vardy has denied the accusations and is suing Rooney for libel.
Jamie Vardy attended the trial for the first time on Tuesday and sat next to his wife during the court proceedings.
A court sketch of the England international has now gone viral on social media, with football fans less than impressed with the artist's depiction of the striker.
"The court artist got the wrong Leicester City 2016 hero! Jamie Vardy? Or Robert Huth??," wrote one Twitter user.
Another added: "Shades of a young Miroslav Klose!"
A third wrote: "Why he look like the moon?"

It comes just days after a court sketch of Wayne Rooney was also mocked online after he attended the trial to support his wife Coleen.
One Twitter user commented: "Why have they made him look like Mike Tyson?"
A second tweeted: "They look like Triple H and Stephanie McMahon."
While a third added: "Looking more and more like Danny Murphy."
Rooney gave evidence at the trial on Tuesday and sensationally claimed that he was asked by former England manager Roy Hodgson to speak to Vardy over his wife's behaviour during the Euro 2016 tournament in France.

Rooney said he was pulled aside by Hodgson and his then assistant Gary Neville, who asked him to raise the "awkward" issue with Vardy that his wife was "causing problems and distractions" for the team.
Jamie Vardy insists that conversation never happened and has accused Rooney of talking "nonsense".
In a statement outside court, the Leicester striker's representatives said: "Wayne is talking nonsense. He must be confused because he never spoke to me about issues concerning Becky's media work at Euro 2016.
"There was nothing to speak about, I know this because I discuss everything with Becky."
The trial continues and is scheduled to finish on Wednesday.
