Cape Town - Several Orlando Pirates stars are in hot water after posing naked in a shower with the Nedbank Cup trophy.

According to the Times Live website, in the photo, seven Pirates players are seen naked with the trophy at their feet.

One of the culprits, Thandani Ntshumayelo, owned up to leaking the picture on his Instagram profile on Thursday. He also sent an apology, through Twitter, to the club and the competition sponsors, Nedbank.

“I would like to apologize to everyone the club the sponsors and all the people for posting that picture on instagram...

“At the time i thought it was a joke sorry to my teamates...  I sincerely apologize....bibo.”

The picture is believed to have been taken after Pirates beat Bidvest Wits 3-1 to win the Nedbank Cup final at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban last Saturday.

Pirates have promised an internal inquiry will be launched.
