A rather bizarre scene occurred in Belgium’s pre-match press conference that featured Eden Hazard on Tuesday.

During the presser, the Real Madrid winger was accused of gaining weight by an Egyptian reporter.

The journalist told him: “I have noticed that you have gained weight.”

To this, a perplexed Hazard responded: “I don’t have much to say about that. Except it’s not true. I’ll do anything to be ready.”

According to Belgian outlet Nieuwsblad, the same reporter proceeded to ask Hazard for a selfie after the press conference was over.

Unsurprisingly, the Madrid winger turned down the request as he was understandably angry at the insulting accusation.

Hazard is focused on helping his Belgium side progress to the World Cup knockout stages, for which they must defeat Croatia on Thursday.
