Arsenal superstar Mesut Ozil has confirmed that his Instagram account was hacked after a picture showing him alongside his former girlfriend.

This is the photo that Mesut Ozil claims was uploaded to his Instagram after he was ‘hacked’.

As the former Real Madrid midfielder’s Germany team-mates were celebrating their Confederations Cup triumph in Russia, Ozil’s Instagram account uploaded a snap of him holding his former girlfriend Mandy Capristo is his arms with the caption: “I know I messed up Mandy but will always love you.”

The Arsenal star posted on Twitter to confirm he was trying to rectify the situation.

The social media post quickly grabbed the attention of the Gunners fans, but Ozil was quick to confirm that his Instagram profile had been hacked.

He then posted another tweet with a picture of him alongside his current girlfriend and fiancée – former Miss Turkey winner, Amine Gulse.

He wrote on Twitter: “As you may have seen my account was hacked this evening. Thanks to my team and Instagram for assisting me today in getting back control of my Instagram.”

Earlier last week, Mesut Ozil was enjoying his summer holiday taking a ride on a boat at 130mph with lady love Amine Gulse in Turkey.
