It's been a year and a half since Wayne Rooney paid 30,000 pounds for his hair transplant, but the Man U ace appeared at a post-training press conference displaying a thatch that seemed to be showing the vulnerability of his famed tresses.

He had the "follicular transfer" treatment - in which hair follicles are extracted from lush patches and reinserted where hair is thinning - at a London clinic.

According to the Daily Mail, he said at the time he was delighted with the result, and in the months immediately after the operation, he boasted a relatively thick crop.

But the recent evidence shows that there's been some unwelcome thinning taking place. (ANI)
