Sunrise producers left hosts Sam Armytage and David Koch a little taken aback on Wednesday when they featured Greg Norman’s X-rated photo gaffe on the show.

Norman sent the internet into meltdown this week when fans noticed he’d revealed a bit too much in a photo at the beach.

The Australian golf legend posted three photos on Instagram on Monday showing him playing with his dog by the water in Florida.

But followers were left rubbing their eyes over a very X-rated detail in one photo.

“Doesn’t leave much to the imagination!” one follower commented on Instagram.

Another commented: “Damn Greg save it for the OnlyFans. Absolute unit!”, while a third wrote: “I cannot focus on the dog, my eyes were somewhere else.”

On Wednesday morning the Sunrise hosts got in on the fun when Mark Beretta featured the photo in a sports wrap.

“Shouldn’t we be pixelating parts of that?” Kochie said in disbelief.

Edwina Bartholomew replied: “I don’t know what you mean Kochie, what are you looking at?

“It’s just a photo of Greg Norman and his dog going for a stroll on the beach.”

Armytage added: “It pays to advertise. It’s a world where you’ve just got to put it all on Instagram.”

To which Kochie replied: “Well, he certainly put it all out there!”

Armitage was also rather tickled by where Norman’s dog was looking in the photo.

Paige Spiranac joins in on the fun

On Wednesday, former golfer-turned-social media star Paige Spiranac had her say.

“Greg ‘The Shark’ Norman. More like hammerhead shark,” Spiranac tweeted in reference to the Aussie’s famous nickname.

A former World No.1, Norman won the Open Championship in 1986 and 1993, and finished runner-up at the other three majors numerous times.

In 2018 he opened up about how he stays in shape, with the 65-year-old still sporting an insane physique.

“I work out a minimum of five days a week, sometimes six days. I always take at least one day off,” he said.

“I have a full gym at my house. I built it. It’s got a cardio room, a full weight room, free weights, all that stuff.

“At the end of the day, I do enjoy keeping fit at my age.

“I don’t have any ego about me, but I do love having a fit life.”
