The 41-year-old posted a picture of himself taking a sip of wine with his biceps perfectly in the frame.
He captioned the post: "Eased into holiday mode with a crisp one! Not posing at all, I swear!!" but Rafael was quick to call him out.
The Brazilian replied with: "Stop doing photoshop in your arms bro."

Twin brother Fabio then also reacted to the message with a series of crying with laughter emojis.
Rafael and Ferdinand were United teammates for six years before Ferdinand departed Old Trafford in 2014.
The full-back recently revealed that Ferdinand was always a leader in the dressing room and recounted a story were he hit out at Cristiano Ronaldo.
"Rio Ferdinand is the best defend I played with, by far," the current Lyon man told ESPN per Metro.
"I tell you, by far. By far he's the best defender I played with. He was a good leader. For me a centre-back has got to be a leader.
"So many times I saw, when I arrived here at Manchester United, I saw Rio - Ronaldo was one of the best already - I saw Rio just saying, 'Come back! Come back!'
"You know like he shouted with him. But he spoke with everybody.
"So a leader is that, because you have to speak with your best player because he has to defend as well because if he is not defending it is hard for us.
"And then on the pitch he was one of the best, with the ball, positionally. So Rio Ferdinand is for me the best centre-back I played with."
Ferdinand and Rafael played together during David Moyes' ill-fated season as United boss.
Rumours emerged that Moyes attempted to show Ferdinand and central defence partner Nemanja Vidic videos of Everton defender Phil Jagielka.
However, Ferdinand strongly denied the claims.
"I don't know where that came from to be honest, that's something that never happened," the former England captain told the Savage Social podcast.
"Listen, Phil Jagielka was a very good player. I'm sure he wouldn't have shown us videos of Phil of how we should be doing this and that, but I don't know where that came from. That's just some mad tale that's come out of nowhere.
"Someone has dreamed that up and it's become a great meme."
