An Australian banker who was caught on live TV looking at scantily clad photos of model Miranda Kerr will not lose his job, the bank said.
Macquarie Bank worker Dave Kiely was at his desk as a colleague was being interviewed about interest rates when the camera showed him apparently opening email attachments of nearly-nude photos of the model.
Australian Kerr, 26, who is engaged to Pirates of the Caribbean star Orlando Bloom, had said she hoped Mr Kiely would not lose his job.
Reports say she said: "I am told there is a petition to save his job, and of course I would sign it."
The bank said in a statement it had completed an internal review and Mr Kiely would keep his job.
"Macquarie and the employee apologise for any offence that may have been caused," the bank said.
