The 19-year-old, who last played for Margate Football Club, had asked for the naked photos when the pair were in a relationship, and could not cope with seeing his ex with a new man.

De Olivera, who claimed he deleted the photos after “five minutes”, admitted one count of disclosing private images with intent to cause distress.

At Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court today, District Judge Barbara Barne handed De Oliviera a 12 week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months.

He was ordered to complete 100 hours unpaid work within 12 months.

Julian Becker, prosecuting, previously told the court: “These images was composed of two naked photographs of the victim, but in one photograph.

“This was posted on Instagram and seen by others.

“The victim became aware when her friends saw the images, and she was very distressed by this.”

Mike Nicholson, defending said: “She sent him the photographs unprompted.

“She began a relationship with another, when he found out he was upset, he knows he shouldn’t have done it, he fully admits this.

“He deleted them after five minutes.”

Mr Nicholson described De Olivera as a “talented footballer” but told the court he was now living at home, after getting paid to play for Margate last year.

It became an offence to share private sexual photographs or films without the subject’s consent in April 2015, with offenders facing a maximum sentence of  two years imprisonment.
