A MediaWorks employee altered Black Cap Tim Southee's Wikipedia page to poke fun at his in-flight exploits on the way to the World Cup.

The fast bowler was cleared of a lewd act after a woman sat on his knee in a business class cubicle, but his online page was changed to suggest he would get "a high five in the locker room".

Leon Wratt, programme director for The Edge, said the radio station's host Vaughan Smith had been "high on a list of suspects" but denied being responsible.
