Someone decide to catfish and pose as Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson on Tinder – only to be caught out immediately.
Coventry City fan Hattie Rowe went viral on Twitter after posting her favourite ever interaction on a dating app.
While having a swiping session, she encountered a 26-year-old called ‘Dan’, who looked awfully similar to an England midfielder who came through the Sunderland youth system.
They were listed as being 37 miles away, had been to the University of Edinburgh and even had the famed blue tick.
Okay well this is my favourite tinder interaction of all time, cheers Dan x pic.twitter.com/xcZ99ncOHM

Curious to find out what on earth was going on, Hattie ended up matching and a conversation started.
She took the opportunity to ask the chap why on earth they were impersonating Henderson, to which the individual simply replied: “I am Jordan Henderson”.
When she pointed out that “Jordan Henderson is literally playing for Liverpool right now” against Crystal Palace on Sunday, an even better response was conjured up.
Hilariously, it read, “Yeh [sic] I ran off the pitch to message you, too good to miss”.
The tweet has been liked over 58,000 times, in addition to garnering over 5,000 retweets.
We’re guessing the conversation didn’t continue for much longer after the final message during which a slew of laughing emojis were sent.
In reality, Henderson is happily married to Rebecca Burnett and the couple have three children together.
His profile on the now defunct social media Bebo has gone viral before and his bio includes an absolute gem of a sentence where he wrote, “ive gota gawjuz girl cald sarah shez amazin n i love her been together just over a year n its great.”

In another football-related Tinder tale, someone once decided to set up a profile for a Football Manager regen.
Incredibly, ‘Lucas’, a 21-year-old who used to play for River Plate and has 20 finishing, caught someone’s eye and prompted them to swipe right.
I can’t believe someone’s actually swiped right on him 😂😂😂😂😂😂I’m in tears pic.twitter.com/jY4MmaqWOk
