The wives of two of English soccer's most high-profile players got embroiled in a spat on Twitter on Wednesday about the leaking of information to a tabloid newspaper.

In a post to her 1.3 million followers, Wayne Rooney's wife, Coleen, accused Rebekah Vardy — the wife of Leicester striker Jamie Vardy — of informing The Sun about details of her private stories written on Instagram.

Coleen said she spent five months attempting to work out who was sharing the stories, going as far as blocking everyone from viewing her Instagram page except for one account and then posting "a series of false stories to see if they made their way into" the newspaper.

FIFA fines Hong Kong soccer body for China anthem protest

  FIFA fines Hong Kong soccer body for China anthem protest ZURICH — FIFA has fined Hong Kong's soccer federation 15,000 Swiss francs ($15,100) for fans disrespecting the Chinese national anthem before a World Cup qualifying game last month. Hong Kong fans booed and turned their backs when the anthem was played for their team before a Sept. 10 qualifier at home against Iran. The game took place amid ongoing pro-democracy protests against China's rule of Hong Kong, which was under British rule until 1997. FIFA said Wednesday the charge against Hong Kong was "disturbance during national anthems; use of objects to transmit a message that is not appropriate for a sports event.

Two of the UK game's highest - profile partners of footballers have kicked off on social media over allegations involving The Sun.

Coleen finished her tweet by saying her private investigation showed "just one person has viewed them. It's ..........Rebekah Vardy's account."

Vardy, who has 90,400 Twitter followers of her own and is well known for appearing in a reality TV show in Britain, denied leaking the information.

Vardy replied to Coleen on Twitter, saying she "never" speaks to journalists about her and that she recently discovered that "various people have had access to my insta."

"I'm disgusted that I'm even having to deny this," added Vardy, who said she was "upset" at being accused by Coleen, especially because she is pregnant with her fifth child.

Wayne Rooney, a former Manchester United striker who has been playing in the United States for MLS team D.C. United since July 2018, is returning to English soccer in January as player-coach of second-tier club Derby County.
