Gymnast Farah Ann Abdul Hadi's Instagram account was hacked days before the SEA Games competition where she successfully defended her gold medal in the artistic gymnastics floor exercise event.
Personal photos of the 23-year-old's Instagram account with over 112,000 followers started disappearing on Monday.
Her account under the name "Farah Ann" as well its profile with details of her other social media accounts have been replaced with Arabic writing.
The account name has been renamed to "i BOY" while the profile states that the account is for sale.
There are only three photos in the account, one of which is a selfie of an unknown man.
Farah Ann confirmed on Twitter that her account had been hacked.
"My Instagram is being hacked. I have no access to it and the hacker is deleting my photos," she tweeted on Tuesday.
However, the mysterious hacking did not faze her as she delivered a flawless performance for the gold medal on the final day of the 2017 Kuala Lumpur SEA Games artistic gymnastics competition on Wednesday.
Farah Ann's Instagram account hacking follows CyberSecurity Malaysia's report that 33 Malaysian websites were defaced by a hacker group, believed to be in retaliation for the SEA Games souvenir booklet blunder that erroneously carried an upside down Indonesian flag.
