Hello, hello. What's going on here then?

Either people seemingly close to Oracle Team USA members are looking to put up New Zealand flags around Bermuda if Peter Burling and the Kiwis seal the deal in the America's Cup final tomorrow - or perhaps they've been collecting them for some reason?

Whatever the motive for this Instagram post from the account of Oracle Team USA grinder Louis Sinclair, it was very suddenly removed shortly after being published.

The picture reveals a man tipping several New Zealand national flags out on the floor.

Other people are in the background smiling and taking pictures.

Earlier in the Cup regatta, there had been news reports of New Zealand flags being taken down from different areas of Bermuda after being placed there by Kiwi supporters.
