Record-breaking tennis player Serena Williams caused confusion on Wednesday when a Snapchat post prompted reports she was pregnant.

The American shared an image of herself in a skin-hugging yellow top, posing to accentuate her figure, accompanied by the ambiguous caption: "20 weeks".

Widespread reports swiftly claimed the 35-year-old was pregnant with her first child, but Williams subsequently deleted the post.

Women's tennis governing body the WTA also removed their congratulations on Twitter, suggesting the post was either made in error, or that initial interpretations of the image were inaccurate.
