Western Bulldogs superstar Bailey Smith has reminded his fans he’s an ‘angel’ following a raucous week of partying in Perth after the AFL grand final.
The 20-year-old, who has become known for his iconic blonde mullet, looked fresh on Monday as he posted a picture of himself sitting shirtless in a living room — sending his followers into an absolute frenzy.
In the photo, Smith is seen sitting on a chair using his phone with nothing but shorts on — his chiselled abs on full display. He captioned the snap with an ‘angel’ emoji.
Aussie YouTuber Lannan Eacott, who has 2.4 million Instagram followers, urged Bazlenka to turn down the heat.
“Yo dude chill… my mum has this app,” he wrote.
And its seems his ‘thirst trap’ snaps are working, with his Instagram profile amassing 327,000 followers, only behind two other AFL players in Buddy Franklin (334,000) and Dustin Martin (338,000).
The star started the year with only 130,000 followers, but after a big season and an electric finals campaign his fan base quickly grew.

The innocent snap comes after video emerged of Smith giving a pep talk in a huddle with club patrons during a messy night out in Perth.
“At the end of the day it’s about the f**king ticker,” Smith says in the clip.
“We’re here right, we’re here. We haven’t slept in 48 hours. Sleep is for the f**king weak.
“Sleep when you’re dead. When you’re dead we’ll do that. It’s a big night. We’ll relax. We’re having a bit of fun.”

Another man in the huddle joins in and says “f**k a couple of chicks.”
Smith responds: “We'll have a crack”.
The star was spotted at a number of other Perth hot sports during the week, but the bender came to an end last Friday when he jetted home with teammates Patrick Lipinksi and Laith Vandermeer.Internet Explorer Channel Network
