RIO FERDINAND posed in a wheelchair dressed as the Grim Reaper for Halloween after spending a week in hospital.
The ex-Manchester United star pulled on the ghoulish outfit and make-up just in time for the weekend’s spooky celebrations.
He was pictured alongside wife Kate, who looked stunning dressed as Cruella de Vil.
Sharing the snap on his Instagram account, the legend explained he was never going to miss the Halloween festivities.
He wrote: “Happy Halloween. Been in hospital all week, promised the kids I’d dress up… even if it was for an hour & in a wheel chair.”
There was some confusion when the telly pundit first revealed news of his hospital dash.
It was not clear at the time whether he was joking or serious, with supporters mixed on his message.
Ferdinand initially shared an image of what appeared to be his feet in a hospital bed as United slumped to a 5-0 shocker at the hands of their arch rivals.
No further details of the issue have come to light.
Wife Kate shared another look at her Cruella outfit on her own Instagram account.
She wrote: “Thank you to the most fabulous team for this look, Cruella was a vibe.”
