Crystal Palace confirm Martin Kelly was not pictured helping the injured in Paris

Selhurst Park - Crystal Palace - 23/02/2014

Thankfully Martin is safe but we're not sure what people are playing at with this picture.

The devastating attacks on Paris on Friday evening have left a reported 128 dead and the world in mourning in the wake of the tragic events.

With Paris being a massive tourist destination, you can imagine that several Brits were in the city during the time of the attacks.

And, with the international break being on and many footballers not on duty with their countries, a number of Premier League performers were free to get some away time from the pressures of football.

And one of those was Crystal Palace defender Martin Kelly, who was in Paris and was out around the times of the attacks, even posting on Instagram.


Thankfully, Kelly was announced as being safe by Crystal Palace.

And a picture started doing the rounds of a young man helping aid workers with the injured, that many have claimed to be Kelly.

The picture had initially come from this Twitter user, who later deleted his tweet out of respect:

However, various sources, including one of Crystal Palace's programme editors who had been in touch with Kelly, have confirmed that it isn't him in these pictures.
