This photo, seemingly of the players of Danish handball team Team Tvis Holstebro, went viral - for all the wrong reasons.

... it?s the wrong photo.

The female players from the handball team Team Tvis Holstebro in Denmark are being celebrated these days for their victory in the Cup Winners Cup. Not just in Denmark, but in prominent papers such as New York Post and The Sun. The only problem is they're being celebrated for a picture that doesn't show them.

»Congrats, you have a new favorite handball team«, New York Post wrote Tuesday in a headline. The article featured the story of the women of Team Tvis Holstebro and their victory and showed a picture of some very happy and attractive - and naked - handball players posing with their new trophy - and, oh yeah, it was in the shower.

The problem? It wasn't Team Tvis Holstebro on the picture. Instead it shows handball women from another club in Copenhagen, FIF, who'd won a tournament in Germany prior to the photo being taken.

The photo of the naked ladies went viral and can be seen on news sites all over the world.

Coach for Team Tvis Holstebro, Peter Krautmeyer, found the mix up funny at first.

»Now we're famous in the states! :),« he commented on Facebook.

But now, following it's viral move, he's more sceptic, feeling that the initial mix up has been blown out of proportion.

»A news channel in Australia has contacted us to get information on some of the players, because they want to do an interview.«

»I'm aware they don't play a lot of handball in countries like the US, England and Australia. But it's funny no one has made the effort to check the story and see if it was correct,« Peter Krautmeyer says to Dagbladet Holstebro.
