Several Premier League footballers' Twitter accounts were hacked on Wednesday night during the Spanish Supercopa second leg fixture between Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam, Manchester City's Samir Nasri and Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea were amongst those who 'sent out' tweets featuring expletives.
