Many commentators have mistakenly assumed that the cricket star used a dye to retain his color, but Johnson has set the record straight and claims that is not the case.

“It is the natural color of my hair, black, I did not color it,” he wrote. “I would definitely go for the silver fox look as it would be a normal / natural thing, but not gray yet.”

Johnson has spoken candidly in the past about his mental health issues, particularly his battle with severe depression on SAS Australia last year.

He warned his supporters and critics in his response to think twice before posting by targeting someone online.

“I can get by on social media and I don’t mind, but many cannot bear to be criticized or harassed online,” he continued.

“Think before you write a comment about someone’s appearance, you have no idea what they’re going through and how it can affect them.”

He then concluded, “Just remember before you comment, would you say that to an unfamiliar face?”
