A video of Coventry striker Yakubu apparently doing nothing during his side’s 3-1 defeat by Swindon is not all that it seems.
The clip went viral on social media over the weekend and showed the Nigerian hovering near the touchline as play raged around him.
But Yakubu had actually suffered a hamstring injury but could not be replaced as Coventry has used their three substitutes.
Yakubu pulled up shortly after laying on the pass for George Thomas to score a late consolation goal and the centre-forward was brought to a halt for the final few minutes of the match.
CJ Joiner told the Coventry Telegraph : “It was originally put out to say either a player isn’t injured and not doing a lot or, worse, he is injured and the manager has kept him on.”
He also questioned whether the player had warmed up adequately ahead of replacing Marcus Tudgay in the 70th minute.
After sharing the video on Twitter , Mr Joiner said: “This video brings up certain questions. It appears he is injured. Why did the lack of a proper warm up have a negative effect?
“We had used all three subs but he was trying to avoid the ball. If he was injured there are some big issues here.
The only thing better than being given chocolate as a kid is being given chocolate with a toy inside – which you can then build yourself and feel like you’re really smart.
Did you ever stop to think about why the little case containing your toy is yellow? No, why would you?
But there’s actually a really obvious reason the plastic pods are always the colour of sunshine.
It’s meant to look like the yolk when you crack the egg open.
People are only just realising this and sharing their disbelief on Twitter. It’s definitely blowing a few minds.
I didn’t know the toy inside a Kinder Egg was yellow cos it was the yolk? Wtf

This video captures the moment a woman tries to teach a lesson to a man who refused to take his feet off a train seat.
The incident took place on Canada’s transportation system on Wednesday, when the middle-aged woman boarded the train.
She was shocked to discover a man resting both his feet on a seat, and decided to take matters in to her own hands by apparently sitting on his feet.
The man then gets irate and tells the woman – who has been identified as Miel Vasulka – to ‘get off me please’, to which she replies: “I’m trying to explain to you that your feet shouldn’t be on the seat.”
The man then eventually pushes her off him and storms away, saying, “I’m about to spit in your f*****g face.”
Since the incident, Vasulka has insisted she did not sit on his feet, and that she actually sat in front of them.
She told The Star: “I want to emphasize that I didn’t sit on his feet.
A man claims he found a DEAD MOUSE inside a bottle of Diet Coke – but social media users smelled a rat sparking speculation he faked the incident.
Erick Dixon posted a live video on Facebook of his disgusting discovery which soon went viral, with more than 5.7 million views.
He told viewers: “I found something a bit strange in the top part of the bottle and decided to record a video while emptying the drink.
In the footage, Erick uses a large knife to prise the cap off a glass bottle of the soft drink, branded as Coca-Cola Light in that territory.
There is no audible hiss of escaping gas though a bubble can be seen flying out of the bottle after it is opened.
He seems surprised to find some hairs on the underside of the cap, telling viewers: “There are hairs in the cover. There are also hairs inside. I am going to throw it because it is too disgusting.”
He pours the dark liquid into a sink and once it has drained, a dead rodent is seen inside the bottle.
Erick says: “Look at this, something is appearing now. I don’t know if you can see it, but this is a rat, inside a Coke bottle.
“It is a new Coke, just bought in Oxxo, it does not matter where it was bought, but it was new, totally new, and there is a kind of little mouse.
“This is the mouse that invaded my Coke. If you drink Coke, please check it before drinking it.”
Netizen ‘Marla C Valles’ said: “We almost believe you, man.”
‘Jacob Espinosa’ said: “When he opened the bottle, there was no gas from inside.”
But ‘Teresa Ortega’ wrote: “What a disgusting thing!”
‘Bianca J Primero’ added: “Very disgusting, poor you, man. I do not notice if there are hairs in the cover or what, but it is disgusting anyway.”
The company behind a viral video apparently showing a cat-calling victim ripping the wing mirror from a white van man’s vehicle has admitted not everything is as it seems.
In the video, the van driver shouts over to a female cyclist: “Alright, want my number?” – and she is later asked: “You on your period?”
The ‘enraged cyclist’ later responds by pulling up alongside the vehicle, with two men inside, and yanking its wing mirror off.
But after witnesses began claiming the video was actually staged by a camera crew, the company responsible for distributing it made a humiliating admission.
Paul Beiboer, the boss of Jungle Creations, which claims to “create and curate the best content on the internet”, said his firm handed out the footage “under the impression that it portrayed real-life events”, but now believes the video may be “factually incorrect”.
“Contrary to reports, we want to make clear that we were in no way involved in the making or production of this video.
“The video was received from a third-party content provider and it was distributed on Viral Thread under the impression that it portrayed real-life events.
“We rigorously vet all content received from third parties to ascertain its credibility, but unfortunately our usual high standards were not met on this video.
Kareem Naaman said on social media after the footage went viral: “This is fake and was filmed by actors. Mate of mine saw it all being filmed.
“Not sure who or why, but interested to find out what it was for.”
Eagle-eyed viewed slowed down a recording of the show to capture the moment Danielle Atkin had her embarrassing wardrobe malfunction.
She was presenting the Australian version of The Price is Right when her red dress failed to keep her contained.
As the crowd cheers behind her, her dress slips down as the presenter smiles to the camera.
Cheeky Rebekah Eldridge from Milton Keynes covered her hand and a kitchen knife in the liquid pretending she had cut herself.
But when her boyfriend Reuben Fiander rushes to her aid he suddenly falls ill when she shows him her hands.
The video shows Rebekah ringing up her partner and saying: “Can you come back to the house please, I’ve cut my hand and it won’t stop bleeding.”
After he agrees to come home she turns to the camera with a cheeky grin on her face.
“I’m literally going to make it so bad,” she says, as she liberally covers her palms and a kitchen knife, adding: “That’s two tubes of blood.”
When he walks in he hurries towards her but stops dead in his tracks at the sight and puts his hand over his mouth in horror.
“How did you do that?” he asks, holding onto the nearest surface and looking rather ill.
He then suddenly drops to the floor, causing Rebekah to cry out: “Babe” before she rushes over to him.
“Babe, it was just a joke,” she says as she tries to revive him.
When he comes round he fails to see the funny side and hauls himself up the floor, much subdued.
“As long as you’re okay,” he murmurs, as she continues to laugh at the prank.
Talented Daisy Clark, 18, from Cornwall, is tipped to be the next big thing after bosses at music giant Warner spotted her song.

The video, which has been shared across social media, has gone viral with more than 25 million views.
There are many things you’re likely to see on your way home from a night out on the town on a Saturday: chips strewn on the floor, someone being sick and perhaps a fight.
Community volunteers Cheltenham Guardians, who support the local police in the town centre at weekends, explained the bizarre sight on their Facebook page .
They revealed that a “middle-aged” woman was spotted stripping off in the middle of the street in preparation for a cat fight with another lady who, they later found out, was her best friend.
They wrote on their Facebook page: “Quite often when two angry men square up for a fight one or both may remove a shirt.
“We’re not sure if this is a show of bravado (think strutting peacock) or a desire not to get that Ralph Lauren shirt ripped.
“Imagine our surprise when two middle-aged women squared up for an altercation on the Promenade and one removed her dress and bra before fists flew.
“Thankfully Guardians were on hand to restore order to chaos and the bra to its semi-naked owner.
“It turned out that these two fighting hens were best friends. Let’s hope they reflect upon their actions and deal with their differences in a more respectable way next time.”
