Pictures of a naked man were allegedly sent from Burgess‘ Facebook account to a 23-year-old woman, the Australian newspaper reported.

The man’s face cannot be seen and Burgess, 29, reportedly declined to comment when approached by reporters outside his house.

Rabbitohs chief executive Blake Solly told the news outlet that he had held “constructive and helpful” discussions with the woman, who they report first contacted the club four months ago saying she felt “violated” and “disgusted”.

One snap is claimed to show a screenshot of a man pulling down his pants to reveal his manhood.
