Sir Ian Botham 'Posts' Picture Of Penis On Twitter, Claims He Was Hacked

Sir Ian Botham possibly got a bit too excited by England's Test revival when a picture of a man's penis was posted from his Twitter account.

"What are you thinking....xx" read a tweet from Botham's verified Twitter page, along with a gentleman's middle stump.

Botham was informed by Robbie Savage: "mate think you been hacked."

Botham claimed his Twitter account had been hacked

"Yes mate just changed my password !!! There's some idiots out there !!" Beefy's responded.

Fortunately for Botham, England won their final Test against India on the third day, so he will be spared from his Sky Sports colleagues' banter at the Oval on Monday.
