Ricky Hatton has said he woke up ‘in a puddle of f***ing tears’ after realising he spent €920 (£834) on a rib eye steak after flashing his bum in an Instagram snap from his holiday.
The retired boxer, 40, is currently enjoying a trip to Mykonos, Greece with his girlfriend Charlie, and spared no expense with his luxurious meal, with the total bill coming to €1,927 (£1,748).
Sharing a photo of the alleged receipt on Instagram, Ricky appeared to be having some regrets about splashing the cash on his steak, writing: ‘Just woke up this morning in a puddle of f***ing tears. That’s what you get for being a fat greedy little s**t.’

He added: ‘I just ordered it. Didn’t look. Ha ha. The bill came & the fun police just started laughing. Wow.’
While Ricky may well have inadvertently paid an exorbitant sum for his Greek meal, the post could also be another Instagram prank from the former boxer, who has previous for sharing shots originally posted by other people.
In November 2017 Ricky was left red-faced after uploading a shot of an attractive, scantily-clad brunette preparing a fried breakfast, only for it to later emerge that he had absolutely no connection to the woman in question.
The photo showed the woman stood over the hob in a black bra and a mauve thong, with the accompanying caption: ‘Some breakfast I woke up to this morning.’

Fans had speculated whether Ricky had been the person to take the photo of the girl in his Instagram post, with many joking that he must have ‘used a ladder’ or a chair to do so. Others quipped that the star ‘wasn’t tall enough’ to have captured the shot.
While some commented on how ‘lucky’ Ricky was, after seeing the snaps, others were quick to question how genuine his post had been.
It was later revealed the girl was an Instagram model who has no connection to the former boxer.
Referring to the image, a source told MailOnline: ‘He’s nicked it off the internet!’

Taking to Instagram on Sunday, the Stockport native also shared a snap of himself standing in the buff looking out at the Mediterranean sea from the island’s AGL Luxury Villas where he is staying for his holiday.
Alongside the snap, he wrote: ‘Never seen a better view. #Mykonos’.
Earlier, Ricky shared a photo of himself in Nammos restaurant on the Greek island where he flexed his biceps after finishing his meal.
The boxer shared another photo of the couple sat at their table, with Charlie looking stunning in a cream summer dress with a brown patterned design.
Charlie shared the same photo to her Instagram account and said she was ‘having the best day’ with Ricky.
Ricky and his other half made their romance public last July when the sporting champion shared a series of photos from their trip to Las Vegas.
The new couple stayed at the prestigious Caesar’s Palace hotel and posed for a number of smitten snaps to celebrate their romantic break, with Ricky referring to Charlie as his ‘partner-in-crime’.
Just days before his trip to Mykonos, Ricky cut loose in Tenerife and insisted to his followers that he was fine after being filmed stumbling to the ground after a drinking session.

Dancing to the sound of ‘All Night Long’ by Lionel Richie, the boxer is seen on video with a white shirt pulled over his head before he falls to the ground inside the bar.
Ricky said on Twitter: ‘Just a message re the c*** in the papers to my friends & fans as I’m sure they might be concerned. I went to Tenerife for 10 nights.
‘I went out six nights and stayed in four nights. I had my girls for three days & spent the vast majority with my whole family. Look on my insta.
‘It just so happens I fell on my a*** p***** one night. Jesus who hasn’t done that on holiday? Used to fall on me a*** every night. Need to get rid of that belly tho. All good. The hitman.’
The video emerged last Monday evening but it is believed it was taken a few days earlier.
A number of people inside the bar can be seen recording Ricky before he takes a fall.

Ricky was enjoying himself along with friends inside the Dubliner Irish Pub in Tenerife and it appears he was tripped with the group messing around.
Fans were quickly fearful for the health of the Mancunian with one user writing on Twitter: ‘I don’t feel the need or desire to share it, but the video of Ricky Hatton that’s been circulating is bleak. I hope he can get some help.’
Another added: ‘Doesn’t look good, even worse that people straight out with phones. We love to hit people when they’re down for some reason.’
On Monday night Ricky posted a story to his Instagram page showing him having a quiet night in a pub with Sky’s Monday Night Football on in the background.
He has had trips to the zoo and has also posted his family relaxing on the beach as he looks to take advantage of the summer holidays.
MailOnline has contacted a representative for further comment.
