Final straw ... England and Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere
ENGLAND ace Jack Wilshere has called cops after Twitter trolls claimed he had tested positive for cocaine.
The outrageous suggestion that the Arsenal midfielder — out of action since injuring his ankle last August — has not been playing because he failed a drugs test was tweeted from two accounts and spread like wildfire last week.
It is the latest online bullying incident to rock Wilshere, 20, and partner Lauren Neal, 23 — who have now closed their Twitter accounts.
A friend of the star said: “Someone is spreading hateful lies and he and Lauren have decided enough is enough.
“Most of the abuse was the kind of stuff he hears on the terraces. But it has got more personal.
"The stuff about the drug test was the final straw — he would never take drugs.”
Wilshere has spoken to police but not made a formal complaint.
He has a dossier of malicious messages ready to hand over. The pal added: “It’s upsetting that someone can be so vile.”
News of their ordeal comes as campaigners warned the Government its troll crackdown does not go far enough.
Wilshere had an op after suffering a stress fracture in a pre-season friendly last August.
Arsenal have called in lawyers and said: “The rumoured reason on social networks behind Jack’s absence this past season is entirely fabricated and false.”
