Rebekah Vardy broke her heel and fractured part of her foot in a horse riding accident, one of her friends has said.

The 41-year-old wife of Leicester City striker Jamie had to be taken to the accident and emergency department in Leicestershire on Friday, it has been reported.

She hurt herself when her horse "got spooked and threw her from the saddle", resulting in her foot getting stuck in the stirrup and Rebekah being dragged on the ground, said a friend quoted by The Sun.

“Becky is a confident rider but this accident left her pretty badly shaken,' the source said.

She received treatment and was sent home with a boot to support her foot.

“Jamie is taking good care of her and she’s hoping to have the boot taken off in a few weeks,' her pal said.

Rebekah apparently saw the funny side in her ending up in the same boot Coleen Rooney wore during their famous Wagatha Christie libel trial.

Coleen, 37, underwent a two-year investigation in a bid to find out who was leaking details of her life to The Sun newspaper. She has recently opened up about her side of this story in her new Disney+ docuseries, Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story.

In the three-part series, the WAG said that she had purposely posted a series of false claims on her private Instagram page and blocked everyone but Rebekah’s account from seeing them.

One of Coleen’s notable concocted tales claimed the couple were travelling to Mexico to look into “baby gender selection”. But the social media post was completely fabricated as former England footballer Wayne had secretly undergone a vasectomy after welcoming son Cass in 2018.

But soon after revealing their fake plans online, Coleen said that the story found its way into the pages of The Sun and confirmed the leak could have only come from Rebekah’s camp.

Rebekah launched a libel case against Coleen but ended up losing it when the judge said she was an "untrustworthy witness".
