A man has appeared in court after allegedly uploading CCTV footage that apparently showed England rugby star Mike Tindall being kissed by a blonde woman.

Jonathan Dixon, 40, appeared at Queenstown District Court, New Zealand, according to a BBC report, accused of "accessing a computer system for a dishonest purpose".

No plea was entered by the man, who is understood to be a bouncer at Queenstown's Altitude bar.

It was claimed that Dixon uploaded to YouTube footage of Tindall being kissed on the head. He married the Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips just seven weeks ago.

The England rugby players were at the bar ahead of their World Cup game against Georgia yesterday, which the team won.

The match came after a week in which the England players had been criticised for their antics in New Zealand, including taking part in a bungee-jumping session and participating in a dwarf-throwing contest.

Dixon was told to return to court on 3 October.

He told the Dominion Post that he was disgusted with Tindall's behaviour at the bar with the blonde woman, who is said to be an old friend of the rugby star.

"Mr Tindall, you did something really wrong, not just to your wife but to your nation," said Dixon.

"I knew there was no chance of me ever standing in front of Tindall and giving him a piece of my mind about his conduct, so I decided to put it on YouTube so that everyone could see it and form their own opinion."

A spokeswoman for Phillips said: "This girl in the video is an old friend of Mike and Zara and has known Mike since university days. She is English but lives in Australia and was on holiday in New Zealand. Zara is very relaxed about all this." ®
