GORGEOUS Italian TV presenter Diletta Leotta has laughed off sexist chants made by Napoli fans as a joke, insisting it was all a "misunderstanding".

The 28-year-old beauty made headline news last week when video surfaced of a section of fans at the Stadio San Paolo chanting "fuori le tette" (which roughly translates as "get your t*** out") at the reporter as she made her way past a stand.

"It was a misunderstanding. Napoli fans supported me throughout the game, then they tried to go further after Napoli won, but it was just a joke."

But Leotta, who anchors Serie A coverage for the subscription sports streaming service DAZN, has told SunSport that she saw the funny side, which is why she smiled, wagged her finger and gave the cheeky supporters the thumbs down.
