You won't believe what this South African team did after winning the cup

South African football team the Orlando Pirates have had their cup celebrations cut short after a picture of them celebrating has gone viral.

The picture could be described as risky as it shows many of the teams starting XI including some South African internationals posing with the Nedbank Cup Trophy while completely naked.

The picture shows the players covering their modesty with their hands and posing in what appears to be post match celebrations.

Orlando won the Nedbank Cup at the weekend following a 3-1 victory over Bidvest Wits.

 The picture has been heavily criticised with the South African newspaper The Times claiming that next years winners of the cup may have to sterilise the trophy.

It is still yet to be seen how the players in the picture and the cameraman themselves will be dealt with but it is surely a negative issue to ruin an otherwise fantastic weekend for the Orlando Pirates.
