All Blacks legend Ma’a Nonu has reclaimed his Instagram page after being hacked by a Turkish account earlier this month.
On 9 July all of Nonu’s pictures disappeared from his account and were replaced be a selfie of a Turkish guy, which was sent out to his 300,000 followers on the social media platform.
While it provided humour to a lot of rugby fans around the world, Nonu was able to make a new post on Friday announcing the safe return of his profile with all of his followers and pictures in tact.
