GORGEOUS Italian TV presenter Diletta Leotta has laughed off sexist chants made by Napoli fans as a joke, insisting it was all a "misunderstanding".
The 28-year-old beauty made headline news last week when video surfaced of a section of fans at the Stadio San Paolo chanting "fuori le tette" (which roughly translates as "get your t*** out") at the reporter as she made her way past a stand.

It was a misunderstanding. Napoli fans supported me throughout the game, then they tried to go further after Napoli won, but it was just a joke."
But Leotta, who anchors Serie A coverage for the subscription sports streaming service DAZN, has told SunSport that she saw the funny side, which is why she smiled, wagged her finger and gave the cheeky supporters the thumbs down.
She revealed: "It was a misunderstanding.
"Napoli fans supported me throughout the game, then they tried to go further after Napoli won, but it was just a joke.
"My reaction was part of the irony of the moment."
The blonde bombshell, who fell foul to iCloud hackers in 2016 who leaked nude images of the former Sky Sports Italy host, admitted she never imagined the story would get such traction around the world.
"Sometimes it feels like everything I do goes viral," she said.
"If I work out at the gym or dance in a club… So I wasn't surprised, but I didn't expect this story to cross so many borders."
HER OWN FAPPENING
Three years ago, Leotta was left devastated when private nude pictures were stolen from her iCloud and posted online.
Italy striker Mario Balotelli immediately jumped to her defence at the time, tweeting: "Everyone is free to do what they want with their body, for better or worse. People who abused this situation are a**holes."
