Adam Johnson's sister has denied reports that her brother was attacked in the prison showers. 

It had been documented that the former footballer, who is currently serving six years in prison after initially being found guilty of one offence of sexual activity with a child by a jury at Bradford Crown Court on March 2, had been beaten up by another convict after refusing to clean hair from a plug hole.

In fact, a witness claimed that the convict punched Johnson in the face, but the ex-Sunderland man opted to defend himself.

"One of the cons told him to clean his shower again. Johnson ignored him and the other bloke really got in his face. Johnson then swore at him. The bloke punched him in the face and Johnson defended himself," a witness told the Daily Star Sunday.

However, his sister has since taken to social media to claim that the report is not true. 

Twitter response 

Faye Johnson tweeted: "The press make me laugh 😂 Just spoke to my brother, the articles are all untrue! You will all hear the truth when Adam comes home!"

Johnson's sister has consistently defended him throughout and even created a "Justice for Johnson" photograph on Facebook following his child sex offence convictions.

After his conviction, she released a photo of the player and his one-year-old daughter and stated: “Change your profile picture to support Adam Johnson’s appeal. Facebook removed our group but we will not stop publicising our support #TeamAJ".
