Aussie Olympic swimming hero Grant Hackett has been left red-faced and fuming after his email account was used to send around 50 abusive messages to friends and colleagues.
The outspoken and sometimes controversial star believes a rival swimmer must be behind the hack attack.
"People have sent emails to me and he, or whoever it is, has sent emails back to them being abusive, calling them f-word names and telling them to stop sending me letters. [He's] trying to break up friendships with people I know," Hackett told reporters.
"It's obviously someone involved in swimming to be able to have all these swimming addresses," he added. "It's somebody in the swimming world who has some sort of a problem, some sort of mental disability I guess. It's causing me a fair few problems right now and I'd love to catch the person."
