THIS stunning sports journalist has blasted hackers who posted nude pictures of her online which they nicked from her iCloud.
Diletta Leotta, 25, a TV presenter and reporter for Sky Sports in Italy, claims that only a handful of the pictures and videos were authentic.
The beautiful blonde, who has more than a million followers on social media, insists the rest were fakes, adding: “Although many still do not believe it.”
She recalled the heart-stopping moment when she realised that her smartphone had been hacked and that pictures she considered private had entered the public domain.
Leotta said: “My phone would not stop ringing with calls, messages, WhatsApp.
“I didn’t cry at first. I found strength I didn’t even know I had. But after three days, yes, I succumbed.
“Those photos maybe I sent to someone, perhaps a couple of them. I hadn’t seen the pictures for years.
“I thought I had deleted them. I wouldn’t even describe them as sexy.
“I became aware that they were part of my private archive. Someone must have intentionally hacked into my iCloud account.”
But Leotta said that she felt no regrets or guilt over what happened to her and urged other victims of hacking abuse to follow her example.
She added: “I want to say to the girls or the boys who have experienced the same thing, that you should not feel guilty.
“Everyone has the right to do what they want with their life, their privacy and their mobiles.”
The popular presenter said that she had even been accused “by less intelligent and sensitive people” of leaking the photographs herself for the publicity.
But Leotta insisted: “It seems clear that the road I want to take is very different.”
After her pictures were leaked online, Leotta was supported by Italian footballer Mario Balotelli, 26, who said: “Everyone is free to do what they want with their body, for better or worse.
“People who abused this situation are a**holes.”
Leotta presents Sky Sports’ coverage of Serie B football in Italy, along with colleague Gianluca Di Marzio.
