JACK GREALISH IS quickly learning about the perils of fame.

The Ireland U21 international, who starred in Aston Villa’s FA Cup semi-final win over Liverpool last Sunday, has become the latest footballer to be accused of taking nitrous oxide, after previous incidents involving Raheem Sterling and Saido Berahino.

The Sun claims pictures of Grealish show him taking the substance six months ago with another man in a hotel room.

Often referred to as ‘hippy crack,’ nitrous oxide is not illegal and is used as a painkiller, though medical experts have spoken of the dangers of consuming it in high quantities.

Grealish has attracted considerable interest of late, with a series of eye-catching performances renewing interest over the confusion surrounding his international future.
