Hulk Hogan is following in Donald Trump's footsteps.

The legendary wrestler (61) was duped into retweeting a photo of Austrian man Josef Fritzl, who kept his daughter locked in his basement for 24 years and fathered seven of her children.

Hogan was asked by a 'fan' to retweet a photo, saying it was of his grandfather and photoshopped a wrestling t-shirt on the convicted criminal.

Twitter user Andy wrote: "@HulkHogan Hey Hulk, can I get a retweet for my grandad? Despite some family problems he never misses a show!"

The image has been retweeted more than 3,900 times and was sent last night and the error was first spotted by V Point News.

In a similar situation, Donald Trump was tricked by a social media user into retweeting a photo of serial killers Fred and Rose West.

Bradbury wrote: 'My parents who passed away always said you were big inspiration. Can you pls RT for their memory?'

Trump responded in fury last year, saying:  "I thought I was being nice to somebody re their parents. I guess this teaches you not to be nice or trusting. Sad!"

He then threatened to sue the man in question.
