Rob Gronkowski is known for his endeavours in the NFL and his on-field presence for the New England Patriots, not for grocery shopping.

That's why a fair amount of people may have been pleasantly surprised to see him riding a scooter around Whole Foods at the weekend.

The famous Patriots tight end has recently had a surgery date pencilled in to correct a knee injury which could keep stop him from playing for the rest of the season.

But that didn't stop him from posing for a photo with two boys in a Whole Foods market whilst sporting a Kansas State hoody.

The image caused something of a media storm when it surfaced on Twitter, with Gronk smiling happily atop of his motorised scooter.

It's not smiles all-round however, as the Patriots are cursing their luck at having their tight end ruled out for the rest of the season. The 6ft 6in Arizona graduate sustained the injury during the game against the Cleveland Browns.
