The Aussie cricketer was the victim of hackers for the second time in as many weeks, with a number of unsavoury posts appearing on his social media accounts.

His bio was changed to “JOIN SHADOW REALM, LINK IN BIO! FOR FREE NUDES”, and a number of X-Rated pics were posted.

Watson, who played 59 Tests and 190 one-day internationals for Australia, managed to remove the content and later apologised to his 1.3 million followers.
