In conversation with professional footballer Leigh Nicol on phone hacking and mental health

Posted on 16 December 2021

In November, Leigh Nicol, a professional footballer who currently plays for Crystal Palace, spoke to Associate, Alexandra Agnew, about the traumatising experience of phone hacking and the impact it had on her mental health.

In 2019, whilst playing for Charlton Athletic, Leigh's iCloud was hacked, and private content started to appear on adult websites. The incident caused so much distress that Leigh spiralled into depression, and even considered taking her own life.
