Although a winner on the football pitch, Wayne Rooney has been losing a battle with his hair since he turned 25.
Rooney’s receeding hairline prompted him to visit the Queen Anne Street Medical Centre off London’s Harley Street, where many top doctors have their surgeries.
The England and Manchester United striker confirmed via Twitter that he had a hair transplant in a bid to restore his receding locks to their former glory: “Just to confirm to all my followers I have had a hair transplant. I was going bald at 25 why not. I’m delighted with the result.”
Post treatment, Rooney was spotted wearing a baseball cap and a hoodie despite the heat on Thursday most likely to hide specks of blood left behind during the early stages of the procedure.
He confirmed on Twitter that his head is “still a bit bruised and swollen when it dies down u will be first to see it. Anyone recommend any good hair gel. Haha.”
In a bid to drop the stigma associated with hair transplants for men of younger years, Rooney joked that his fans should try to make the topic one of the most talked about on Twitter.
