Choudhury paddled on the spot trying to keep his left leg above the water in an attempt to save his phone.
The midfielder hilariously scrambled to fish the phone out of his pocket to fling it to safety, before letting out a stream of expletives.
Maddison posted the clip to the social media platform with the caption: ‘How did he not see that coming?’

Fans were quick to react in the comments with many more concerned about the condition of the phone than Choudhury.
One joked that the prank was red card-worthy, writing: ‘Red card. Phone in the pocket rule.’
While another wrote: ‘Oh no, this is a red card and the phone is in the hospital.’
One fan hailed Choudhury’s reaction to rescue his phone, saying: ‘Fast reaction to his phone, give him a trophy.’
Maddison also posted the clip to his Instagram story, writing: ‘Sorry Hammmmy, couldn’t resist.’

The prank happened as Leicester prepared to face Chelsea on Saturday on the return of the Premier League after the international break.
Maddison failed to receive a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s squad as England secured their spot for next year’s World Cup but the midfielder should be rested and prepared to face table-topping Chelsea at the King Power Stadium.
Brendan Rodgers’s side currently sit 11th in the Premier League on goal difference but are level with Crystal Palace and Everton on points.
