Former Grey High School First XV rugby and water polo coach Dean Carelse, who was convicted in Australia after being found with child pornography, is back in South Africa, News24 can confirm.

Carelse was a Water Polo Queensland coach when he was arrested in March 2021 after police raided his Mooloolaba home and seized two phones that had more than 2 000 pictures of child exploitation material, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

The 41-year-old pleaded guilty to almost 20 charges, including being in possession of child exploitation material and indecent treatment of a minor child, reported ABC News.
