Twitter users are baffled over a diver who appeared to be 'naked' on screen during a televised competition.
Jake Lowe, from Brunswick, Ohio, was preparing to perform a reverse somersault-tuck in a West Virginia University Athletics diving competition, televised on ESPN.
However, he was mortified to find himself appearing 'naked' on screen as the TV captions had covered his swimming trunks, making it appear as though he had nothing on.
His swimming trunks do seem awfully low... but who are we to judge?
Jake posted the offending screenshot on his Twitter page with the caption: "ESPN did me so dirty tonight." Well, yeah, looks like it. Fortunately, it seems Jake has seen the funny side.

The photo has since gone viral, gaining over 167,900 likes and more than 7,300 retweets, leaving social media in stitches at the blunder.
Some on Twitter questioned what sort of swimsuit Jake was wearing, with one person writing: "Like, I'm wondering if you were to remove the graphic what's my guy have on??"
Another referenced Jake's surname in a pun, writing: "Good thing they didn't have that graphic LOWE-r." Bravo.
Meanwhile, a third said: "Boy naked as hell," while another person raised a valid point: "Graphics department and the camera man need to be addressed ASAP."
But if you thought Jake's nudity proved a talking point, get a load of this guy who tried to board a plane in the buff.
The man made (serious) claims that his clothes impaired the aerodynamics - maybe if the plane was wearing a gigantic parka or something.
He was trying to board a plane at Moscow's Domodedovo Airport, destined for Crimea, and in the pic above he can be seen standing brazenly in the queue beside (fully clothed) bewildered passengers.
In the end, it was not clear what the man had in mind, but he did the sign of the cross several times as the line moved forward.
An eyewitness told REN TV: "He went through the registration, threw off all his things, his bag, stripped naked and ran. He was detained when landing, managed to run. He broke through the ramp, he was detained further. I think this is spring aggravation. He was not drunk.
"He shouted that he was naked because the clothes worsened the aerodynamics of the body. He would fly more agile without clothes."
