Wayne Rooney slammed for swimming with captive dolphins in Dubai

FOOTIE boss Wayne Rooney has landed in hot water for swimming with captive dolphins.

His wife, Coleen, shared a snap of the Derby County manager, 36, and their four sons at Atlantis Dolphin Bay in Dubai.

They were seen stroking a dolphin while son Klay, nine, got a peck from one at the £150-a-head attraction.

Peter Kempl-Hardy, at World Animal Protection, said the family had been misled.

He added: "Unfortunately, the industry is profiting billions from keeping dolphins in barren, concrete tanks 200,000 times smaller than their natural space."

Animal protection charity Peta said the dolphins are confined for decades to "tiny, chlorinated tanks and groped by strangers".

The Rooneys are in Dubai awaiting the result of Coleen’s Wagatha Christie High Court libel trial.

The ruling is expected to be delivered in the next two weeks.

Coleen, who is being sued for damages over her now infamous post accusing Rebekah of leaking stories to the Press, has told pals: "The result doesn't matter — I've already won."
