Rugby league player Keith Mason has been awarded almost £150,000 in damages after he was sacked for gross misconduct when a naked picture of his team mate was posted on his Twitter, the Daily Mail reports.
Mason, 31, was dismissed last October after the picture of former team mate Scott Moore's bottom was posted to his account. It remained there for around 48 hours as the team celebrated the final game of last season during a three day drinking session known as 'Mad Monday.'
His club admitted the photo was posted without Mr Mason's knowledge, but dismissed him for bringing the club into disrepute by not deleting it soon enough.
Mr Mason said his former club wanted to get rid of him because of his expensive contract and said the Twitter picture was used an excuse.
Judge Andrew Saffman ruled in his favour and awarded the player £146,0000.
A rugby league star who was sacked after a photo of a team-mate's bottom appeared on his Twitter account has said he is delighted with a High Court judge's ruling that he was unlawfully dismissed by his former club.
The picture was found on Keith Mason's iPhone by his girlfriend, Lauren Harwood, after the players returned from a drinking binge last September.
She posted it on his Twitter account - which attracted 4,200 followers - with the message "what the hell is this?" and it remained for around two days before Mason deleted it, the court heard.
Huddersfield Giants claimed the 31-year-old committed gross misconduct by not deleting it quickly enough and ended his £95,000-a-year salary last October, just one year into his four-year contract.
A judge ruled that Mason's actions could not be construed as breach of contract, and as a result his dismissal was wrong.
