A water polo coach and Sports Illustrated model who slept with “at least” five students at a prestigious boys’ college has been referred to police.
An investigation found married teacher and former model Fiona Viotti slept with her students and sent them explicit photos and videos, which were circulated on social media and even made their way to PornHub.
The 30-year-old resigned from the $15,000-a-year (R150,000) Bishops Diocesan School in Cape Town in October amid allegations of an inappropriate relationship with an 18-year-old student.
Ms Viotti, the niece of former Springboks coach Nick Mallett, reportedly sent threatening messages to the student via WhatsApp when he tried to break off the relationship.
She resigned with “immediate effect” after the news became public, and the school brought in lawyers to conduct an investigation into the alleged “serious misconduct”.
The school later announced that several more pupils may have been involved with the former teen water polo star, who was featured in South African Sports Illustrated in 2009 as one of its “Beauties of Sport”.
