But then there's Lewis Hamilton and the strange case of his vanishing social media posts.Over the Christmas period, the world champion found himself at the centre of a storm after posting on Instagram a video of his young nephew wearing a pink dress, and Hamilton saying: "Boys don't wear princess dresses."

The video was posted on Christmas Day. Hamilton was widely criticised. An apology followed on Boxing Day.Then, over the next day or so, all the posts Hamilton had ever put on Twitter and Instagram disappeared. They were systematically deleted over a period of several hours. Although his Facebook account appears untouched.

As yet, no one outside Hamilton's close circle of friends and advisers knows why, or what that means.

Has Hamilton disappeared from social media for good? If Authentic Ka'imi Fairbairn Jersey so, why keep the accounts open? But if http://www.authenticcelticstore.com/authentic-14-bob-cousy-jersey.html he hasn't, why delete the posts? Was this a fit of pique following a torrent of online criticism for what was interpreted in some quarters as him admonishing his nephew for wearing a dress?

I don't have an answer to these questions. In fact, I would hazard a guess that there will never be a clear one.Investigations over the last few days have, though, revealed a few pieces of information.

Firstly, Hamilton has apparently not disappeared from social media for good. It was, I'm told, always the plan of Hamilton and his advisory team to empty his "social channels" this winter; the idea being to make a fresh start in 2018.

Several questions, however, http://www.broncosfootballprosshop.com/Darian_Stewart_Jersey_Cheap remain unanswered: Why the perceived need for a clean slate? Why now and not any other year? Is it to stop media trawling through his social media Womens Zaza Pachulia Jersey history for posts and using them to illustrate stories? And was the deletion and/or its timing anything to do with http://www.authenticblackhawksite.com/cm-punk-jersey_c-465.html the controversy over the 'princess dress' video?

An adviser to Hamilton told BBC Sport: "We have no comment to make on this. We really don't think taking a break from social media during the holidays is newsworthy."

If that's all it was, it wouldn't be. Except, of course, what Hamilton has done is rather more than "take a break" - he has actively sought to wipe his entire social media history.

For a sportsman who has been at the forefront of the use of social media, has 5.3 million followers on Twitter and 5.7m on Instagram, who has used it to give fans an insight into his life, and who has occasionally caused himself trouble as a result, Jason Garrison Womens Jersey that is news, whether Hamilton likes it or not. cheap basketball jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale wholesale jerseys from china jerseys from china cheap jerseys from china wholesale nfl jerseys nike
