However, it quickly became established that the Brazilian had not actually suffered an injury at all and the update had come as a result of the club being hacked online.

The update had claimed Rodrygo had suffered a muscular leg injury in the style and format that Real Madrid usually publish any fitness updates.
Naturally, there will be a level of concern that the club’s online accounts were hacked but fans will no doubt be relieved that the talented forward has not suffered an injury – just weeks after recovering from his latest period of absence.
