Brighton forward Aaron Connolly has reportedly been caught breaking lockdown rules as a sex tape showing him romping with a woman has been leaked online.
The Sun report on Connolly’s potential rule-breaking as it seems the 21-year-old was single at the time the video was made.

This is not the first time footballers have broken COVID-19 restrictions this season, and it probably won’t be the last, but it’s always worrying to hear about what goes on behind the scenes – and the amount of things we probably never find out about.
A source told the Sun: “It’s shocking. Connolly invited the girl to the house where he’s been staying and had sex with her.
“It appears their sex session was filmed and a video was made.
“And it also seems he’s breached Covid lockdown rules by allowing this woman into the house.
“He could well be in trouble with the club over this.”
The Premier League have been eager for players to set a good example throughout the pandemic, and, in fairness, many have done a great job in difficult circumstances.
It will be interesting to see if Connolly ends up being punished for this alleged breach, however, in what sounds like the potential for an explosive story.
