Sir Ian Botham got Twitter talking on Monday morning when a naked and graphic picture appeared on his timeline.

Botham became a talking point on Twitter, unsurprisingly:

And later Botham—who may or may not have been the figure in the picture—took to Twitter to delete the picture and thank what he described as a "hacker" for creating so much interest in his account:
