An Australia fan has been jailed and fined after streaking during the first Test in Sri Lanka.

Alex James ran unchallenged onto the outfield during a rain delay on the opening day in Pallekele before stripping naked and sliding across the waterlogged covers.

He got dressed again and left the field - but was later arrested by police.

James, from Brisbane, was ordered to spend a week in prison and pay a fine of 3000 rupees (£15.70).

Cricket Australia said: "File this one under, 'It seemed like a good idea at the time'."
