AFL premiership star in white powder video

AN AFL premiership player has been filmed snorting white powder.

According to multiple reports, a video that was spread on social media shows a former player cheered on by a group of men chanting his nickname.

The video shows the man snorting one of five lines of powder on the surface in front of him - prompting screams and cheers from the men alongside him.

"Oh my god, oh my f***ing god," one man can be heard saying, The Herald Sun reports.

An AFL spokesman has said the league is investigating the video.

"We are aware of a video currently circulating and are looking into the matter," league spokesman Jay Allen said.

"We won't be providing any further comment until we have all relevant information and have completed our inquiries."

Channel 7 reporter Tom Browne told Triple M's Hot Breakfast said the video shows a "high profile AFL figure".

"There's a high profile AFL figure who looks like they're snorting a white substance - and a considerable amount of white substance - being egged on by people around the particular high profile AFL figure doing the rounds," Browne said.

"I think it will become a significant story."

AFL great and Triple M breakfast show host Luke Darcy described the video as "an unbelievable bit of vision".
