No, you did read that headline correctly. Chris Smalling and his wife Sam claim to have spotted a UFO in Jamaica on Sunday evening.
The 35-year-old went on to describe how the flying object "flew down low past us" and "turned and shot back high up in the sky, where it stayed for an hour maybe longer."
Sam, a glamour model from Manchester, then explained how the silent and camouflaged UFO was "too small to get on film when it stayed stationed in the sky, although Chris could see it rotating with lights flashing around it."
She then claimed the pair could have easily got it on camera as the "massive" object flew past, but the pair "were too gobsmacked" by the unexpected discovery.
Here is the story she posted to her official Instagram page.
Two hours later, Sam took to Instagram again to assure her followers that the flying object was "100 billion percent" not a drone.
She wrote: "It was massive and very sophisticated with faint lights all around the edge. It was also an off shape, not like that of a drone. Crazy I know! Also, wasn't a plane or anything like that. It was silent. Even drones are loud.
"Also I have nothing to gain from sharing this. Just that many of my followers will likely think I'm mad."
On the subject of extraterrestrial life, Diego Maradona once claimed he was abducted by aliens in a UFO.
Talking to Argentine sports channel TyC Sports in 2019, the legendary forward was asked if he believed in UFOs.
"Why make things up? Once, after a few too many drinks, I was missing from home for three days," he said. "I got home and said that UFOs had taken me. I said 'They took me, I can't tell you about it.'"
