What does the England football captain do when he is not at training or playing matches?

The Sun have obtained footage of the Manchester United star being decked by Phil Bardsley of Stoke City in his own home. 

The pair are former United team-mates and were sparring in the kitchen of Rooney’s Cheshire mansion when Rooney appears to have been knocked unconscious courtesy of a left-hand jab.

Rooney made light of the incident with his goal celebration after scoring against Tottenham on Sunday - throwing some air punches before falling backwards onto the .
