Choudhury was crouched at the edge of the pool when Maddison snuck up behind him.
The midfielder then kicked his partner on the back to push him into the water.
Choudhury flew into the water as Maddison filmed the prank from the side.
Fans reacted quickly in the comments with many more concerned about the condition of the phone than Choudhury.
One joked that the joke was worthy of a red card, writing: ‘Red card. Ruler of the phone in your pocket.
While another wrote: ‘Oh no, this is a red card and the phone is at the hospital.’
A fan praised Choudhury’s reaction to rescuing his phone, saying, ‘Quick reaction to his phone, give him a trophy.’
Maddison also posted the clip on his Instagram story, writing: ‘Sorry Hammmmy, I couldn’t resist.’

He took the phone out of his pocket and tossed it to safety from the middle of the pool.
The joke occurred as Leicester was preparing to face Chelsea on Saturday in the Premier League return after the international break.
Maddison didn’t get a call-up for Gareth Southgate’s team when England secured their spot for next year’s World Cup, but the midfielder must be rested and ready to face Chelsea at King Power Stadium.
Brendan Rodgers’ team is currently 11th in the Premier League on goal difference, but is tied with Crystal Palace and Everton on points.
