However, Leukaemia Care UK, a national blood cancer support charity, quickly took to Twitter to explain a few facts and set the record straight as they showed their support for the former Royal Rumble winner.

“The tweets we are seeing mainly centre around the idea of what a cancer patient should look like. 'How can he have hair?' 'How can he have not lost weight?' 'Why doesn't he look like a cancer patient?'

“We're going to weigh in here with some leukaemia information. Back to basics. Leukaemia is a cancer. It affects people of all ages. There are four main types of cancer: ALL, AML, CLL and CML. However, there are other types and subtypes. LEUKAEMIA IS COMPLICATED!

“The different types are key. Acute leukaemias are aggressive and need aggressive treatment to save a patient. Chronic leukaemias are incurable but treatable.

“DON'T FORGET - We do not KNOW what type of leukaemia he has. Therefore, NONE of us are in a position to question his treatment, how he should look etc.”

Reigns had a massive appearance on Monday Night Raw as he joined Seth Rollins in helping their former Shield brother Dean Ambrose escape a beating from Bobby Lashley, Baron Corbin and Drew McIntyre.
